Waghimra zone has been severely affected by the impact of El Nino phenomenon in 2015 /16. ACF, SCI and PIE have been partnering to respond to this emergency through multisectoral response. It contributed to decrease impact of the shock. But the nutrition situation is not yet improved, and even worsening nutrition situation in 6 woredas of Waghimra Zone is observed currently : as per nutrition TFP admissions is higher than 2015 by 15%, Moreover, even if harvest was back to "normal" the production is still insufficient to ensure food security of vulnerable people who will enter in hunger gap in June 2017. Therefore, the nutrition situation is not expected to improve through 2017. ACF, SCI and Plan International partnered again to ensure supporting the government in responding to this admission increase. This emergency response strategy is to provide nutrition specific response by reinforcing MOH capacities at facility levels through OTP/ TSP, TSFP, IYCF E and outreach) and nutrition sensitive response (water treatment chemical and NFI, seeds and milking goat for HH with malnourished children and rain water harvesting for health facilities).
