Somalia

8 projects

Somalia has been affected for many years by insecurity, instability and increasing levels of violent extremism, all of which have led to weak state capacity and low levels of governance. Our actions aim to help consolidate the gains made in recent years towards peace, stability and prosperity, and to address Somalia's most pressing political, economic and security needs and aspirations. Conflict and climate change have led to a large number of refugees in neighbouring countries and displaced people within Somalia. We are supporting the safe and dignified return and reintegration of Somali refugees into stable areas of the country, as well as providing economic opportunities and basic services for vulnerable people including those affected by climate- or conflict-related shocks.
