Titre : SomReP - Somalia Resilience Program

Pays/Région : Somalie

Durée : 01.04.2020 // 31.03.2023

In the fragile and conflict affected context of Somalia, SDC’s contribution to the Somalia Resilience Programme Consortium enables pastoral, agro-pastoral, displaced persons and peri-urban poor to increase their ability to prepare for, adapt to and live through shocks without eroding their productivity or assets. Focusing on capacity building, livelihood diversification and the elaboration of community-based early warning systems, this initiative is complementary to ongoing efforts of government of Somalia and international community to build resilience of communities to climate shocks.

Projet en bref
* Contexte : Over the last thirty years, Somalia has endured recurrent armed conflicts, economic and climatic shocks such as droughts resulting in erosion of productive assets and livelihood base of the population. This has created widespread poverty ; with over half the country’s 12.5 million people living below the poverty line of USD 1.90[1]. Crop farmers and livestock keepers in rural areas have suffered most, leading to persistent food insecurity and vulnerability over the last decade. As at September 2019 The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of The United Nations (UN) estimated that about 4.8million people in Somalia were in need of food assistance (under the Integrated Phase Classification-IPC). Of these, 1.2 million were in severe hunger while 3.6million were in stress situation. Pressure on rural livelihoods has led to increased displacements (2.6million internally displaced persons in Somalia in 2019[2]) into towns and urban cities. Despite modest improvement in the governance environment, the state’s ability to deliver basic services remains weak. Switzerland’s contribution to SomReP program will go a long way to support rebuilding of livelihood assets, protection of communities from the impact of climate shocks and help in developing pathways for longer-term development through support to key sectors such as agriculture, water and business value chains. This will contribute to reduced pressure for displacement, which is in the Swiss interest.
* Objectifs  : To increase the resilience of chronically vulnerable Somali people, households, communities and systems to climatic shocks and other related risks in pastoral, agro-pastoral, internally displaced and peri-urban livelihood zones.
* Groupes cibles  : Pastoralists (7582 households), Agro-pastoralists (7909 households), peri-urban poor (5693 households), and IDPs (760 households) in Baido, El-afweyn, Afgoye and Eyl districts of Sanag, Bay, Lower Shabelle and Nugal regions respectively. A total of 131,664 persons (66,447 male and 65217 female) in 68 villages across the four districts.
