Présentation
In reference to a recent study by NAGAAD peace building in El Afwein district (Sanaag region), and other 6 villages under its administration, it was found that there were large number of conflict-orphaned children, who lost their parents during period ofthe inter-clan fighting, living in scattered areas throughout the district without proper care and education. Research also noted that un-educated, unemployed youth who had no access to any opportunities were a contributing factor to the conflicts in Sanaag region. Youth who lost a close relative to the conflict are more prone to participate in new rounds of conflicts for revenge. To our knowledge, there have not been any proper studies on these underlying conflict-contributing dynamics in Sanaag region.

To address these two conflicts contributing factors, it became necessary for Nagaad Network to do study on inter-clan conflict/war impact on war orphaned children and youth to deeply understand their livelihood conditions and priority needs in regardto their education, employment, and specific to youth’s contribution in inter-clan conflicts particularly in retaliations and revenges that can cause large scale conflicts. The study will use to inform in designing our current and future programming to address those underlying causes and promote peace and security of the conflict affected areas (Sanaag region) ; improve livelihoods and skills development for war vulnerable children and youth ; and enhance integration of conflict affected community.
