FAO: Poor rains forecast puts food security, livelihoods at risk within Somalia

22.03.2018 20:43 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) Within Somalia, massive livestock deaths have occurred due to drought — up to 60% within per cent of herds in some areas — that have severely damaged pastoralists livelihoods, UN Radio says referring to Daniele Donati, Head of the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) programmes within Somalia, report. «Somalia is traditionally an agro-pastoral economy [and] livestock losses have severely affected its economy and people,» he said. As to him, the below-average rains forecast for Somalia could lead to devastating cattle losses and intensify malnutrition within Somalia. «It is crucial that we continue to support pastoralist households build resilience against climate-related shocks by providing timely veterinary and feeding assistance for their animals,» he added. In meanwhile, the FAO new Global Information and Early Warning Report says that while responding to the situation, FAO stepped up its response, providing health services to some some 38.3 million animals, supplementary feeding interventions to close to 1 million, and delivered over 53 million litres of water in 2017. In 2018, the UN agency aims to support some 2.7 million rural Somalis and has appealed for $236 million to sustain its livestock interventions, help farmers secure a good harvest and provide cash transfers to the most vulnerable so families can afford to eat while restoring their own food production. «Providing livelihood support and cash in rural areas not only fights hunger, but minimizes displacement and the sale of productive assets that ultimately feed people and sustain their livelihoods,» the report runs.
