Our current programs

SomReP aims to increase the resilience of chronically vulnerable people, households and communities and systems in targeted pastoral, agro-pastoral and peri-urban livelihood areas. The following programs are aligned towards that goal

Southwest State Drought Recovery Programme

Funded by the European Union the “Southwest State Drought Recovery Programme” is a two-year programme implemented with SomReP, the Agency for Technical Cooperation and Development (ACTED) and its local partner Peace Action Society Organization (PASOS), and Shaqodoon (a local organization). The Programme aims at minimizing the impact of environmental shocks, improving the ability of communities to develop coping strategies against future challenges and make informed decisions about changing livelihood opportunities while enabling communities to continue to adapt and thrive despite stressful conditions in Somalia’s Southwest State including the Xudur, Qansadhere and Buur Hakaba Districts.

The Programme’s activities contribute to 4 result areas:

  • Enhanced food security and ability of communities to meet their social needs through cash based assistance and improved access to social capital.
  • Rehabilitation of degraded rangeland, farmland, water infrastructure and improved management of natural resources
  • Adoption of agricultural technologies, improved production systems and skills development
  • Increased drought recovery and disaster preparedness through community action planning

SomReP has received funding from the European Union (DEVCO), the Swiss Development Cooperation (SDC), Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFAT), and the Danish Refugee Council (DRC), (USAID), Denmark’s Development Cooperation (DANIDA), and the Disaster Emergency Committee (DEC) to implement drought recovery activities in the region.

These activities are focused on five result areas:

.
  • Improving the ability of individuals, households and communities to adapt by supporting the diversification of livelihoods, access to markets and financial services and improving access to basic livelihood services
  • Strengthening the ability of communities and households to prepare for and manage risk by working with them to adopt coping strategies, improve access to formal and informal safety nets
  • Improvement of eco-system health through the equitable and sustainable management of natural resources. Including improving access to water for irrigation, livestock drinking water and household use.
  • Improving the ability of community governance groups to coordinate and collaborate on issues related to conflict mitigation, disarmament, demobilisation and resettlement (DDR) and natural resource management.
  • Sharing results and program learning with other NGOs and stakeholders (ex: communities, government).
