Humanitarian Situation Reports

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.

Sitrep 4/2019: April 2019 [PDF]

Highlights

  • Dry conditions continued in April with the Gu rains starting late in most of the country. Drought related displacements are reported to be increasing, compounding already elevated levels of humanitarian needs for women and children - particularly among vulnerable and marginalized communities.
  • The risk of severe drought, combined with delayed and chronic underfunding of the humanitarian response, could drive the country into a major humanitarian crisis, with children and women bearing the brunt of a deteriorating situation on the ground.
  • With UNICEF support, some 9,600 children were treated for severe acute malnutrition in April - admissions into therapeutic feeding remain upward constant, which is of concern as in previous years, admissions would noticeably decline between January and April.
  • In April, UNICEF mobilized its own core resources to initiate lifesaving drought response efforts, benefiting also from emergency allocations by the Somalia Humanitarian Fund. However, more is needed; UNICEF is facing a 74 per cent funding gap and remains seriously constrained in how it can scale-up to meet the growing needs of children throughout Somalia.
