The inflicted livestock ban and poor 'gu' rains with latent drought perspective, stress pastoralist livelihoods in eastern parts of Ethiopian Somali Region, Somaliland, Puntland and Somalia
Multi-Agency Assessment Mission: 23 July - 3 August 2001. By Yves Guinand, UN-Emergencies Unit for Ethiopia.

Post-drought Somali Region struggles with past emergency legacy
Tries to compare the present general, non-humanitarian and particularly the humanitarian situation in the Somali Region with the situation that prevailed a year ago at the peak of the drought and humanitarian crisis. The objective is also to give an overview and to reveal and explain the root causes and contemporary circumstances that led to the emergency legacy humanitarian organizations are presently confronted with. In addition, the report addresses a few particular issues such as the Sheikash clan migration and settlement process, which are not directly part of the comparative evaluation of humanitarian activities. Prepared by Yves Guinand, UN-EUE, May 2001.
