SomReP, Somalia: Resilience Programme Consortium

Progetto concluso

In the fragile and conflict affected context of Somalia, SDC contribution to the Somalia Resilience Programme Consortium (SomReP) enables pastoral, agro-pastoral and peri-urban poor to increase their ability to prepare for, adapt to and live through shocks without eroding their productivity or assets. While focusing on capacity building, livelihood diversification and the elaboration of community-based early warning systems, this initiative is complementary to ongoing resilience and emergency relief oriented interventions.

For the first time since the 2011 famin, the number of people in Somalia facing a situation of acute food insercurity has increased again. In a context dominated by weak human and instiutional capacity, lack of effective policies, rules, regulations and legislative arrangements, this increases not only the instability and fragmentation of the country but is also susceptible to lead to a renewed hunger crisis, if nothing is undertaken.


Vulnerable communities are increasingly able to prepare for, adapt to and live through shocks deriving from conflict and/or climate hardship.

Gruppi target

70'000 vulnerable pastoralists, agro-pastoralists, and peri-urban households, representing approximately 420'000 individuals in more than 20 districts have been selected by SomReP's initiative.

The selection features also included economic, physiological and social vulnerability criteria in order to prioritize the marginalized component of the Somali population.
