Somalia is at risk to several natural hazards, including drought, floods, cyclones, and climate-related diseases and epidemics. Somalia suffers from vast numbers of malnourished children and a huge population which needs humanitarian aid as conflict is ongoing. Roughly 3 million people require food assistance in Somalia. This situation is exacerbated by recurring severe droughts.
This section provides a summary of key natural hazards and their associated socioeconomic impacts in a given country. It allows for a quick assessment of most vulnerable areas through the spatial comparison of natural hazard data with development data, thereby identifying exposed livelihoods and natural systems.
