Conflict, insecurity, drought and famine have defined Somalia throughout more than two decades. Currently, about a third of the population is still in crisis and in need of immediate food security and livelihood assistance – over 70 percent are in the conflict-ridden South where humanitarian access is limited due to the high level of insecurity. Rates of acute malnutrition illustrate an almost unimaginable situation: 30 per cent of children under 5 are acutely malnourished.

The Humanitarian Situation Reports provide concise operational documents to support the coordination of humanitarian response. It provides a snapshot of current needs, response and gaps and is produced on a monthly basis.

Highlights

  • In the first half of 2018, the humanitarian situation in Somalia remained grave due to residual impacts of drought, ongoing displacement, conflict and seasonal floods. Heavy rainfall in April and May resulted in severe flooding in central and southern regions affecting over 830,000 people and displacing 290,000 of them. On 19 May, Cyclone Sagar hit western Somaliland, impacting close to 170,000 people. The floods and the cyclone destroyed crops, impacted shelters and critical service infrastructure, including water, health, nutrition, and education facilities.
  • Over 5 million people are still in need of humanitarian assistance throughout Somalia, including 2.8 million children. Although the food security outlook is projected to improve in the coming months due to improved rain outcomes and sustained humanitarian action, malnutrition rates across Somalia remain among the worst in the world, particularly in areas hosting internally displaced persons (IDPs). Between January and June 2018, an estimated 119,505 children affected by severe acute malnutrition (SAM) were enrolled in treatment programmes, reaching 70 per cent of the 2018 planned caseload.
  • In 2018, UNICEF has provided clean water to over 800,000 people; critical life-saving health services to 312,000 people; quality education to 50,000 children; protection services including psychosocial support to 16,000 children and regular cash assistance to more than 18,000 households to meet life-saving needs.
