This report shares an analysis of the effects of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in the agri-food system in Somalia. It analyses the results of a field assessment conducted in January and February 2021. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is implementing a project to contribute to data collection and analysis linked to COVID-19 to inform evidence-based programming in selected countries. The objective is to assess the effects of COVID-19 in the agri-food system, which includes crops, livestock and fishing, food supply, livelihoods and food security of the rural population at national level.
