An estimated 857,000 people in Somalia (12% of the population) are classified in Crisis and Emergency acute food insecurity (IPC Phases 3 and 4) in February – June 2014, based on the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC). Most of the population (61%, 4,598,000 people) is facing minimal acute food insecurity (IPC phase 1), while 27% (2,048,000 people) are facing Stressed (IPC Phase 2) food security conditions. There are high rates of acute malnutrition across the country with over 200,000 malnourished children under 5 years. GAM rates for children under five range from high (>20%) to very high (>30%) in the southern regions, while they are generally lower in the northern and central parts of the country (from <10% to >15%). The late start of the April to June Gu season has caused considerable delays in planting, which could affect agricultural production. Insecurity has led to losses in lives and property and hampered agricultural activities as well as disruptions in trade and market activities in South-Central regions. UNHCR estimates the total population of IDPs at 920,000 (valid through Dec 2014).
