This project has two components. 1) The first component, Programmatic Support to International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) for Immediate Drought Response, aims to support ICRC’s ongoing multidisciplinary response to immediate needs arising out of the country-wide impacts of the drought in Somalia. It has the following four subcomponents: (i) Meeting Urgent Food Security Needs; (ii) Improving Access to Water, Sanitation and Hygiene; (iii) Improving Access to Healthcare and Nutrition; and (iv) Project Management. 2) The second component, Programmatic Support to Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) for Immediate Drought Response and Recovery, aims to support the FAO’s Drought Response and Famine Prevention Plan for 2017, with the objective of increasing immediate access to food, safeguarding livelihoods and assets, and supporting the sustainable recovery of agriculture, pastoral and agro-pastoral livelihood systems in target communities. It has the following five subcomponents: (i) Cash-for-Work for Immediate Food Needs and Water Infrastructure Rehabilitation; (ii) Emergency Cash and Agricultural Livelihood Support; (iii) Restoration of Pastoral Livelihoods; (iv) Strengthening Disaster Preparedness, Monitoring and Early Warning Systems; and (v) Project Management.
