RE: EMPOWERED ENTERPRENUER TRIANING FUND
Background
somalia continues to face a protracted humanitarian crisis because of combined effects of droughts, internal conflicts and displacement of populations. Conflict has been ongoing in Somalia for more than two decades. The lack of basic social services, mass displacement, droughts, flooding, and poverty have further exacerbated the well-being of the population and has led to Somalia having some of the worst maternal and child mortality indicators in the world.
Internally displaced continue to be among the most vulnerable in Somalia. A drastic increase in displacement this year due to drought is putting additional strain on scarce resources in existing and new IDP settlements. This is leading to a deterioration of humanitarian indicators for IDPs in a number of areas, including for nutrition, protection, access to water and sanitation and shelter.

Background
somalia continues to face a protracted humanitarian crisis because of combined effects of droughts, internal conflicts and displacement of populations. Conflict has been ongoing in Somalia for more than two decades. The lack of basic social services, mass displacement, droughts, flooding, and poverty have further exacerbated the well-being of the population and has led to Somalia having some of the worst maternal and child mortality indicators in the world.
Internally displaced continue to be among the most vulnerable in Somalia. A drastic increase in displacement this year due to drought is putting additional strain on scarce resources in existing and new IDP settlements. This is leading to a deterioration of humanitarian indicators for IDPs in a number of areas, including for nutrition, protection, access to water and sanitation and shelter. Cumulative displacements monitored by the UNHCR-led Protection and Return Monitoring Network (PRMN) in the period from November 2016 to August 2017 are approximately 975,000 people. Over 893,000 of these are drought-related displacements during the same period. In addition, conflictrelated displacements during 2017 have reached approximately 160,000 people. Provisional figures from PRMN indicate that some 26,000 individuals have been newly internally displaced between 1 and 19 September, of whom 5,000 people by conflict and 16,000 people due to drought-related reasons. This represents a significant reduction compared to the new displacements in August when some 48,000 people (20,000 by conflict; 27,000 by drought) were displaced.
As people continue to flee their homes, the number of sites may continue to grow. Living conditions in the IDP settlements and urban centres continue to deteriorate, with displaced people unable to meet their basic needs due to inconsistent service provision or exclusion from accessing these services. The lack of access to basic services contributes to public health risks, preventable deaths and increased gender-based violence, especially for women and girls. The IDPs have limited livelihood and coping options, exacerbated by ongoing drought-induced displacements. As a result, FSNAU reported that food security and nutrition outcomes across most of the 13 main settlements surveyed between June and July had deteriorated.
