CHF-DMA-0489-124 “Livelihood support for agro pastoral communities in humanitarian emergency and acute food and livelihood crises in South Central Somalia” – 2,115,233$

The agropastoral and riverine populations in southern Somalia who predominantly rely on rainfall for subsistence farming have suffered from a significant decline of the Deyr 2010 cereal crop production. The number of people in crisis increased by almost 70 percent in these areas and currently stands at 440,000 people, of which 76% farmers are from agropastoral livelihoods. The Southern regions are worst affected, hosting 75 % of all caseloads of acute malnutrition and 80 % of all the severely malnourished children. The Consumer Price Index (CPI) of the Minimum Basket increased in the South (32%) and Central (16%).   The main sources of vulnerability characterizing this livelihood include poor seasonal rain performance, shortages and high cost of inputs such as seeds as well as lack of livestock and agricultural extension services, which are also contributing factors of low productivity.

To improve HH food security FAO will purchase farm inputs including quality seed through the Network of seed producers associations and distribute to the vulnerable farmers who lost production in the last season, as well as target priority livestock diseases  of economic importance that  threaten the livelihoods of  pastoral and agro-pastoral HH.
