With support from the European Union’s humanitarian aid and civil protection department (ECHO), WFP is now providing the most vulnerable people in Mogadishu with cash-based assistance so they can shop for the food they need. WFP is increasingly providing cash-based transfers in places where food is available in the markets, but lack of income prevents vulnerable families from accessing it.   Cash and Vouchers Somalia Global Africa Cash and Vouchers Tue, 09 Feb 2016 15:40:53 +0000 Laila Ali 648935 at http://www.wfp.org In Somaliland, WFP Assists Vulnerable People Facing Drought http://www.wfp.org/stories/somaliland-wfp-assists-vulnerable-people-facing-drought Somalia’s rainy seasons are growing shorter and more erratic. In a country where most people make a living from livestock or farming, either too much or too little rainfall can destroy livelihoods and push families into destitution. The ongoing El Niño has led to floods in south and central Somalia, and intensified the dry conditions in other parts of the country, leading to a severe drought in Somaliland, where many people’s coping mechanisms are stretched to a breaking point.  The generous support from DFID, USAID, Germany and Sweden means WFP is able to support drought affected people in Somaliland in ways that are appropriate to each location.  Cash and Vouchers Responding to Emergencies Somalia Local Africa Cash and Vouchers Droughts Emergencies Floods Wed, 27 Jan 2016 09:08:26 +0000 Laila Ali 648884 at http://www.wfp.org Focus On Zero Hunger: COP21 (Episode 8) http://www.wfp.org/videos/focus-zero-hunger-cop21-episode-8 As world leaders gather in Paris for climate talks, this episode of WFP’s “Focus on Zero Hunger” series takes us to Somalia, a country that heavily relies on agriculture to feed its people. Climate change makes droughts and floods more frequent and more intense – for people in Somalia, it means destroyed crops, lost livestock and many displaced families facing hunger. “Over the last 10 years, half of our operations have been in response to climate disasters and helping people to recover from them. Climate change means that we need to be constantly improving the way that we prepare and respond to those crises, always looking for opportunities to help people anticipate climate disasters before they occur,” says Richard Choularton, Chief of WFP's Climate and Disaster Risk Reduction Programmes.
