ReliefWeb » Document » Somalia: Weekly Humanitarian Bulletin No. 33, 21 – 28 Aug 2009

Half the Somali population, 3.8 million people, are in need of livelihood and humanitarian support. This is an 18 percent increase from 3.2 million since January, according to the latest post Gu (rainy season April – June) assessments by the Food Security and Nutrition Analysis Unit (FSNAU). In a press statement issued on 24 August, FSNAU also warned that a further deterioration in the humanitarian situation may occur if current fighting levels continue. Some 75 percent of the people in need are concentrated in South/Central Somalia, where most of the fighting is taking place, causing loss of life and livelihoods and impeding humanitarian access.
