How WFP is Responding to Acute Needs in the Gedo Region of Somalia

The gradual recovery and gains made since the end of the famine in 2012 are at risk of being reversed as poor rains, conflict, trade disruptions and reduced humanitarian access have led to a worsening of the food security situation across Somalia.

Overview

The situation in Somalia has continued to improve since the crisis of 2011, when four million people experienced extreme food insecurity and famine occurred in some regions of the south.  Continued improvements are attributed to successive seasons of average-to-above-average rainfall, increased livestock prices, improved milk availability, low prices of both local and imported staple food commodities, and sustained humanitarian intervention.
