The present intervention concerns the emergency humanitarian assistance to cyclone and flood victims. It’s designed because of the two natural disasters that hit Somalia from March to May 2018, including tropical cyclone “Sagar” in the North and devastating floods in the South causing 62 deaths and forcing hundreds of people out of their homes. These Recent floods have inundated crops and cultivable lands putting an estimated 1 million people in need of emergency food assistance. Lack of access to safe drinking water and destruction of key infrastructure has increased the difficulty of local authorities and development partners to contain the cholera outbreak. The expected outputs of the project are improved livelihoods, food security, and access to safe drinking water. The Bank’s grant of USD 1.0 million will address strategic areas where the funding gaps are the highest, providing access to safe drinking water, provision of food and restocking of livestock.
The objective of the Bank Group Emergency Relief Assistance to the Federal Government of Somalia (FGS) is to contribute to the on-going efforts of the Government and other humanitarian partners to mitigate the impacts of the cyclone and floods on the residents of Somaliland and Somalia.
The project direct beneficiaries are estimated at 10,000 people (1,595 households) who are affected by cyclone and floods in 2 regions in Somaliland (Awdal and Sahil) and 2 regions in Somalia (Gedo and Hiraan).
