Introduction and Needs

For decades, poverty, insecurity, political instability and natural hazards have stalled development and increased humanitarian needs in Somalia. In 2017, severe drought conditions continued in much of the country due to four consecutive failed rainy seasons, preserving the risk of famine for many already vulnerable individuals. As of early November 2017, 6.2 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance including over 2.1 million IDPs. Additionally, resulting from the drought conditions and general insecurity, the food security situation continued to deteriorate with the number of people in IPC 4 (Emergency) increasing to 802,000 in a six month period. Regional issues also pose a threat to the humanitarian situation in Somalia with the continuing conflict in Yemen encouraging tens of thousands of Somalis to return, often with little money and in need of assistance. 

In 2018, humanitarian partners including IOM will prioritize life-saving interventions, including protection services for the most vulnerable, basic services, strengthened resilience and durable solutions as well as data collection and analysis for evidence based decision making. If the needs of these individuals fail to be met, worsening disease outbreaks, displacement, loss of livelihoods and human rights violations are likely to continue. Beneficiaries of IOM response will include drought-affected communities, IDPs, returnees, migrants, refugees, pastoralists, host communities and victims of trafficking. IOM’s multi-sectoral assistance will include: water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), Health, Shelter and non-food items (NFIs), Camp Coordination and Camp Management (CCCM) and protection.  

IOM is well placed to coordinate with other UN agencies, humanitarian and government partners, and international and local NGOs. IOM is an active partner in the Protection, WASH, Health, CCCM, Shelter/NFI and Food Security Clusters. IOM also co-leads the CCCM Cluster with UNHCR and sits on the Strategic Advisory Group for the WASH, Shelter/NFIs, Protection and Food Security clusters.
