Building from the Bottom Up

In 2016/2017, consecutive years of poor rainfall tipped Somalia into drought and food insecurity. The humanitarian system rose to the occasion and quickly responded. As the UN Agencies WFP, FAO and UNICEF noted, through consensus and coordination, we spoke with one voice locally and internationally, and mobilized a USD 1.2 billion response. Partners – humanitarian, development, public and private – pooled their resources and strengths to expand and deepen the humanitarian footprint.

Drought Recovery Planning Bottom Up Approach

Annual resilience measurement

In a bid to document the program’s effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability, SomReP conducted a household survey to better reflect the progress made towards the achievement of its objectives, the project outputs and whether it was plausible to assume causal links between inputs and activities and outcomes and impacts. The evidence accumulated and the lessons learned will inform future strategic programming and project development SomReP Annual Resilience Measurement Report

Livelihood recovery assessment

In preparation for the recovery period, the Somalia Resilience Program (SomReP) conducted an early recovery programming survey in nine districts to follow the drought response awaiting Gu and Hagaa rains. The results of the assessment will be used for planning recovery inputs (agriculture and livestock), water access and Cash for Work (CfW) for drought-affected households in SomReP project districts in South West State SomReP_Livelihood-Recovery-Assessment-Report_7Mar2018_red

Positive Deviance in Somalia

Why are some households more resilient than others? Anecdotal field observations from SomReP program staff suggests that some households and communities are coping more successful than others with the severe climate shocks. SomReP commissioned this research to more systematically explore the relationship between resilience program exposures and well-being outcomes. The study applied a Positive Deviance (PD) framework for analyzing correlates of successful coping or resilience. SomReP Positive Deviance Study Report_16Oct

What is FMNR and how does it work?

Throughout the developing world, huge tracts of farmland, grazing lands and forests have become degraded to the point they are barely productive. When trees and land are overused, soil loses its fertility and ability to sustain life, leading to erosion, destructive winds, droughts, flooding and a loss of biodiversity and consequently, suffering for the world’s poorest people. Learn more how the Farmer Managed Natural Regeneration (FMNR) is currently been used to reverse this situation from the World Vision Australia brief. What is FMNR

Learnings on Savings Groups in Somalia

Experts of resilience shared learnings on savings groups in Somalia. The event held in Sarova Panafric, Nairobi on 18th September 2018 reveled that there is great demand for Savings Groups’ activities in Somalia thus the need to develop strategies for replication, which would support and encourage existing groups to help create new Savings Groups to respond to interest and demands.
