Water situation in northern regions of Somalia remains alarming due to drought conditions exacerbated by El Niño. Severe water shortage is currently experienced in parts of Puntland and Somaliland due to below average rains Deyr 2015 and previous seasons. The most affected regions are Awdal (Somaliland) and Sanaag (Puntland). High incidences of diarrhea related to water scarcity has also been recorded. A harsh Jiaal dry season (Jan – Mar) is further expected to lead to increased cost of water and water trucking in the drought-affected areas. The Somalia Humanitarian Snapshot (as of 12 Feb 2016) released by OCHA also reveals severe drought conditions and water shortages in Awdal and Sanaag regions. The interplay of these weather-related occurrences has exacerbated the poor humanitarian situation creating severe water shortages. The most affected are pastoralist women, girls and boys whose families have lost most of their livestock herds and lack access to water sources. Findings from recent assessments conducted by CARE International, other humanitarian actors such as Save the Children International and Somalia Water and Land Information Management (FAO-SWALIM) highlighted the urgent need for water to save lives and reduce suffering. The proposed interventions seek to address the ongoing humanitarian crisis resulting from drought conditions in Awdal and Sanaag regions. Proposed interventions prioritize emergency water trucking in line with Somalia WASH Cluster and SPHERE guidelines. The proposed interventions will be implemented directly by CARE.
