Direction du Développement de la Coopération (Suisse)

Titre : Horn of Africa NGO Safety Programme

Pays/Région : Corne de l’Afrique

Numéro du projet : 7F-08275.02

Phase en cours : 01.06.2013 - 31.05.2017

Partenaires chargé de la mise en œuvre : NSP - NGO Safety Programme for Somalia • INSO - International NGO Safety Programme

The Horn of Africa (HoA) has seen a strong deterioration of security in the last years. Somalia is exacerbated by a long-lasting armed conflict and, as more International NGOs have begun operations from Mogadishu as well as Puntland and Somaliland, exposure to risks is increasing. Explosions of Improvised Explosive Devices (lEOs) and grenades are frequent and the risk of kidnapping of foreigners remains high. Kenya has seen a sudden increase in kidnappings and terrorist activity since 2011 . NGOs often lack adequate support, information, culture and resources related to security for their operations, which endangers the safety of their staff and the concrete implementation (and results) of their humanitarian and development projects.

In Somalia and Kenya, implementing projects requires constant security analyses and information to access the beneficiaries and ensure the security of the implementing staff. By supporting NGO safety programmes in both countries SOC contributes to adequate analysis, advise and training allowing the operational NGOs to mitigate risks and improve access to beneficiaries, while benefiting itself from this information to strengthen its context knowledge and secure its own missions/operations
