    FAO’s Famine Prevention and Drought Response Plan is part of a wider humanitarian response involving UN, and international and local NGO partners to prevent a famine this year in Somalia. It complements WFP, UNICEF and other partners’ response plans to address the main dimensions of food and nutrition insecurity. Within this Plan, FAO identifies the distinct needs of rural populations to resist famine, and seeks USD 160 million to urgently support them.

    The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) urgently requires funding to increase immediate access to food and basic needs in rural areas, safeguard livelihoods and support food production where it is still possible, as well as to provide supporting evidence and coordination to ensure relevant and prioritized response actions. FAO’s Famine Prevention Plan seeks to reach extremely vulnerable rural communities in areas at risk of famine to avert further catastrophe. If emergency cash and livelihood assistance is not provided in a timely manner, many more Somalis will face worse outcomes; 213 000 people are already facing famine conditions across the country. This number is likely to rise exponentially in coming months if humanitarian assistance is not scaled up and sustained.

    Conflict and insecurity remain the main drivers of food insecurity and malnutrition that have pushed the most vulnerable households to the brink of famine. They include a significant loss of income and disrupted livelihoods, huge population displacement, restricted access, shrinking imports and continuing depreciation of the Yemeni Rial, which deepens the currency and economic crisis. Preventing the country from slipping into famine requires a significant political and economic engagement at all levels from all sides on finding peaceful solutions to end the conflict and an immediate cessation of hostilities. It also requires immediate high impact programmes to bolster and revive disrupted livelihoods for vulnerable rural communities. The Famine Prevention Plan, which is within the framework of the Yemen Famine Prevention Roadmap and the Yemen Famine Prevention Strategy, is just one of the actions that need to be implemented by stakeholders to prevent famine from occurring in the country. The Plan stipulates key interventions that the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) will implement between January and June 2019 to prevent the most vulnerable and at-risk households from sliding into famine. Though the Plan’s interventions are short term and quick impact in nature, they are not mutually exclusive but rather supplementary to interventions of the Emergency Livelihoods Response Plan 2019, which is a twelve-month plan developed within the framework of the Humanitarian Response Plan 2019.
