Titre : Support to food and nutritional security of drought affected vulnerable households in Eyl and Hudur district, Somalia

Pays /Région : Somalie

Code projet : SOM-16/3485/R/FSC/INGO/4468

Durée : 01/02/2017 — 31/05/2017

Présentation
ACF response aims to tackle the effect of El-Nino induced drought conditions in Somalia, the proposed project aim to improve access to nutritious and diverse food for vulnerable drought affected population in Eyl district of Nugaal region and Hudur district of Bakool region through provision of unconditional cash transfer to 7,740 most affected people (2122 women, 2190 men, 1714 boys and 1714 girls) in 5 villages in Eyl district and 7 villages in Hudur district.

Bénéficiaires
The project targets vulnerable pastoralist populations in five villages in Eyl and four villages in Hudur district who have been severely affected primarily by the severe drought conditions in Somalia. ACF will prioritize the most nutritionally vulnerable groups including women of child bearing age, pregnant and lactating women, infants and young children and elderly for the cash assistance.Based on the assessment findings,support to households with young children appears to be particularly pertinent, especially with access to food support to improve their nutrition security. In the current crisis, women in rural communities are more affected by the negative environmental impacts of drought, lack of water availability, and pasture condition, as men migrate farther with the household herds, leaving women and their children without the households assets to trade for cash or access to milk from the herd for stable nutrition. Women also have less access to credit, property rights, education, training, and employment options than men, and female-headed households own less livestock and farm inputs, making them one of the hardest hit groups in times of crisis. As food security continues to deteriorate, female-headed households are particularly vulnerable since they tend to be economically dependent on others and their options for earning income often entail high risk of abuse or exploitation. Given the prominence of female-headed households among food insecure households in the district, and as Somali women play the key household role in purchasing and preparing food, ACF will continue the current project practice of distributing assistance (unconditional cash) to women.ACF has already received funding to undertake cash based emergency response (Cash for Work, unconditional cash) and water trucking to the drought severe villages in Eyl district, but will require additional resources to meet the needs of the 7,740 persons( 2122 women, 2190 men, 1714 boys and 1714 girls) identified in 12 villages within Eyl and Hudur district.
