RESTORE 2 Building Resilience in Northern Somalia

The aim of RESTORE 2 is to address the impact of the severe drought affecting Somalia and to strengthen the resilience of the most affected communities in Northern Somalia. This will be achieved by scaling-up the current RESTORE project, which is strengthening the resilience of vulnerable, drought-affected populations in northern Somalia by both addressing the underlying causes of food insecurity and malnutrition, and restoring livelihoods rebuilding assets. RESTORE 2 will reach out to additional vulnerable communities and households, as well as further build the capacities of relevant authorities to monitor and manage natural disasters.

Main objectives

More specifically, RESTORE 2 will support communities in Somaliland and Puntland in recovering from the impact of the severe drought in 2017 and will increase the ability and capacity of relevant authorities and communities to prepare for and manage future climate-related shocks and disasters.
The specific objectives are:

1) The food security situation in Northern Somalia is improved by supporting the early recovery of vulnerable households and communities and their resilience.

2) High quality information on food security, nutrition and water is generated and leads to adequate advanced planning and preparedness, and the triggering of timely response.
