    Somalia: Humanitarian Response Plan 2023 2023

    Somalia has endured poor rains since 2020, alongside exceptionally high food prices, conflict, disease outbreaks and other hardships. Over a third of the population is acutely food insecure and more than half of them are rural people, struggling to produce the food they need to survive. FAO has extensive reach and capacity in remote rural areas to deliver cash and livelihood support in time to those most in need. Every USD 1 spent to protect rural livelihoods can save around USD 10 in food-related assistance for displaced families. This document provides an overview of FAO's component of the 2023 Humanitarian Response Plan for Somalia. FAO requires USD 247.7 million to assist over 2 million people in Somalia in 2023.

    Poor rains and extended drought over consecutive growing seasons have impacted rural livelihoods and food security in Somalia, pushing the country to the brink of famine. This just five years after the 2011 crisis that claimed the lives of over a quarter million people and as the Somali people continue to rebuild from decades of internal conflict. Some 6.7 million people now face acute food insecurity (IPC phases 2, 3 & 4), with the majority – 68 percent – of severely food insecure (IPC phases 3 & 4) in rural areas (2.2 million). Rural areas are home to nine in ten people at greatest risk – those on the brink of famine (IPC 4). Following early warning in February a quick response by donors, the humanitarian community and the Somali government and people, the worst has so far been averted via a combination of interventions – including cash transfers and livelihood support delivered by FAO at massive scale. April-June rains are critical to Somalia’s main Gu growing season and help rejuve nate rangelands. While they have now started, they started late and rainfall has been below average in many places. Meanwhile, displacement, disease (a severe outbreak of acute watery diarrhoea/cholera) and compounding needs are contributing to a further deterioration in food security.

    In 2016–2017, Somalia faced one of its harshest droughts in recent history. However, the ongoing drought has not led to famine thanks primarily to large-scale humanitarian assistance. While the last deyr rains (October-December 2017) were slightly better than anticipated, sustained humanitarian assistance and support to livelihood recovery are needed in 2018 to prevent further deterioration of the food security and nutrition situation. Investment to protect and restore livelihoods is needed to save lives and reduce humanitarian need and related expenditure.
