Over one million internally displaced in the country between Jan-Oct 2017.
MOGADISHU (Somali Update Online) — Humanitarian needs are on the rise due to limited rain, displacement, lack of access to basic services and continuing conflict.
According to United Nations Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), Over one million people have been displaced due to drought and conflict in 2017, nearly two-thirds of these are under age 18.
Deyr rains have been poor and approximately 50 per cent below average in most areas. Urgent and more sustainable mid to longer-term investment in reducing risk and vulnerability is required.
Food security situation continues to be tenuous and needs are nearly double the five-year average. The number of people in IPC Phase 4 Emergency reflects a sharp spike in the number of most vulnerable people, up from 83,000 people in January 2017.
