drought in Somalia

Welthungerhilfe has been active in Somaliland since 2001. The de-facto state in northern Somalia declared independence in 1991 but was never formally acknowledged by the international community. Today, Somaliland is relatively stable both politically and economically, but more than half of its population lives in poverty. According to government data from 2011, over 60% of people live below the poverty line. Welthungerhilfe is helping Somaliland with food and nutrition security, which is under threat by factors including droughts induced by climate change. Somalia, as a whole, has been dependent on international emergency aid for decades and is the largest recipient of food aid in the world. In the south, daily life is marked by attacks from the radical Islamist Al-Shabaab militias and fighters of rival clans. In addition to the civil war, climate change also contributes to food shortages.
