Omkring 3,4 millioner somaliere kommer i løbet af de næste seks måneder til at mangle mad og andre fornødenheder, takket være en sløj `Gu’-regn fra marts til maj.

NAIROBI, 27. juni 2012 (IRIN): The `Gu’ season accounts for 60-70 percent of Somalia’s cereal harvests.

Among parts of the south in the Africa Horn country that are expected to be affected are the regions of Bakool, Bay, Gedo and Shabelle as well as parts of the Juba region, which normally get 4-6 months of cereal supplies from the `Gu’ season.

“The food security situation is going to deteriorate in the agropastoral areas in the South where below average Gu rainfall in most of the rain-fed farming areas suggest[s] an inevitable shortfall of [the] Gu harvest,” says a 25 June analysis by the Food Security and Nutrition Analysis Unit-Somalia (FSNAU).
