Overview of position
  • The rationale for a durable solutions intervention in Somalia is primarily related to the extent to which conflict has impacted institutional  collapse & the constant increase in the number of displaced persons. The current displacement trends also reveal underlying patterns of marginalization & social exclusion. With reference to displacement, the following driving factors are especially influential in Somalia, conflict & violence in areas of origin (or new areas of settlement), loss of access to land, environmental factors, natural disasters & food insecurity. Vulnerable groups, especially women & children comprising 49.6% & 63% respectively of the displaced populations & thousands of youth & marginalized minority populations, are exposed to violence such as domestic violence, sexual violence, gender based violence, forced labor.
  • In line with the NDP objectives on durable solutions, Midnimo II project intends to be a flexible tool to ensure that key interventions on durable solutions meaningfully support govt. & displaced households break the cycle of displacement. This project takes into particular account the needs of recently & protracted internally displaced persons & in its effort to tackle internal displacement, the program intends to prioritize the reduction of marginalization & displacement driven discrimination by strengthening the trust between displaced groups, host or
  • resident communities & govt. institutions at local level, thereby increasing the participation of IDPs in public affairs. Secondly, by including a spatial dimension centered on the security of land tenure rights, area planning & city extension, the project aims at anchoring displaced populations & at preventing those factors, like forced evictions that contribute to maintain the cycle of displacement. The program finally seeks to set up livelihood systems which will enable IDPs to become sustainably employed while (i) enhancing availability of basic services through their work. (ii) by enhancing their capacity to save & therefore purchase services that cannot currently be provided in the form of universal schemes.
  • The project capitalizes on the successes of Midnimo I & builds on momentum for state / district expansion of authority & accountability to address challenges of conflict, displacement & community cohesion through govt. led but community driven solutions, improvement in  livelihoods & local economy informed by gender differentiated baseline. By targeting underserved states at a critical time supports Somalia’s transition to a peaceful & stable country building on the positive developments & gains made in the local political & social contexts for real change, with credible govt. actors at the fore.
