Support to Drought and Conflict Affected Population in Southern Somalia
Recurrent droughts are a key factor affecting Food Security and Livelihood in El Barde District, considering that 80% of the population are pastoralists who depend on livestock and derived product. After coping mechanisms have been eroded both local and displaced pastoralists depend on humanitarian assistance. The intervention strives to reduce that dependency by rebuilding and enhancing the resilience of pastoralist livelihood.
The devastating drought in 2011 severely affected 13 million people in the Horn. Especially in Somalia the enduring conflict has further exacerbated the humanitarian crisis in the country. While over the last months, the food security situation has improved in most regions, large parts of South Central Somalia, remain in a crisis/emergency phase.

Contraparte encargada de la implementación
Action Contre La Faim (ACF)
370 destitute pastoralist households from El Barde and at least 15'000 lOPs in Mogadishu camps benefit from improved and integrated water and sanitation facilities and 12'000 have access to safer water. Indirect beneficiaries are a population of 466,234 being reached out through communication messaging for hygiene promotion.
Resultados de las fases previas
A large volume of cases were cured of Global Acute Malnutrition and caretakers demonstrated better knowledge of better hygiene practices. However, due to the lack of health services, WatSan, food security and livelihood interventions, the underlying causes of acute malnutrition are yet to be adressed.
