  • Overview

    Heavy rainfall, flooding across Somalia, exacerbated by lingering effects of previous droughts have driven 4 million (21% of population) to IPC AFI Phase 3 or worse (Crisis or Emergency) between January and March 2024. Of these, 3.2 million people (17 percent of the population) are in IPC AFI Phase 3 (Crisis), and around 800,000 people (4 percent of the population) are experiencing worse conditions in IPC AFI Phase 4 (Emergency).

As a result, the number of people facing IPC AFI Phase 3 or worse is expected to decline by 15% to 3.4 million. Most of this improvement is expected in rural areas where enhanced pasture and water for livestock and increased agricultural activities in crop-dependent areas are foreseen.
