Titre : Provision of Seasonal Livelihood Interventions for Vulnerable Farming Livelihood Communities from Recently Liberated Areas in Crisis Situations in - Kurtunwaarey District (L.Shabelle Region) – Somalia

Pays /Région : Somalie

Code projet : CHF-DDA-3485-693 -

Durée : 12 mois Fev 2015

Contexte
Farmers and agro-pastoralist (including recent returnees) especially those in Kunturwarey District cannot utilize their farmland as they cannot purchase farm inputs due to disruption in farming activities (FSNAU outlook 2015). This is despite Lower Shabelle Region experiencing normal 2014 Deyr rains, which resulted in a ’near average’ to ’average’ crop production of cereal. Pockets of Riverine Farmers and Agro-pastoralist in rain-fed areas of the District have yet to recover from the effects of drought and conflict (2010 to 2012) which forced displacement and destitution of the livelihood groups. Lower Shabelle Region was affected by famine as declared by the UN in June 2011. Unlike other Districts in Lower Shabelle Region where relatively good seasonal performance of Deyr rains and humanitarian interventions in support of farming activities have created job opportunities for poor households for seasonal farming activities, the same cannot be said of Kunturwarey District which has been inaccessible till recently after AMISOM/SNA operations. The District has been recommended by the Somalia Food Security and Livelihood Cluster for support in terms of livelihood seasonal inputs geared towards improving immediate access to food and safety nets. CPD plans to support the provision of agricultural inputs in form of certified seeds to 6 accessible riverine and rain fed locations in Kunturwarey District which are currently accessible and need support as a result of disruptions cited.

Présentation
CPD has been actively involved in emergency and rehabilitation as well as capacity building projects in Lower Shabelle Region as a whole. The organization completed a UNOCHA CHF project in Marka District supporting fishing by providing necessary fishing tools and equipment and also providing skills training for women and youth to help them access alternative livelihoods. Marka District has been a key refuge area for the IDPs from within other Districts in Lower Shabelle including Kunturwarey District. The organization has also a permanent presence in the Region where it has undertaken frequent emergency-related rapid assessments in responding to seasonal challenges. The organization undertook rapid assessments in Gu 2013 and 2014 rain seasons to determine the needs of farmers affected by River Shabelle embankment breakage leading to the flooding of critical farmland. The organization has also continued to undertake frequent rapid assessments since March 2014 in all the Districts of Lower Shabelle affected by the AMISOM/Somalia National Army engagement in pushing Al-Shabaab elements in the Region, which has often led to brief population displacement. The assessments have had the aim of establishing the immediate and long term needs of such displaced populations with the results being shared with the various Clusters in Mogadishu.
