What is the Project About

The main objective of the project initiation plans is to provide strategic development support to the office of DSRSG/RR to develop a comprehensive Durable Solutions Strategy (DSS) and to develop project document for a flagship displacement Programme.

Expected Outputs

The Displacement Project has been designed in consultation with the FGS and Banadir administration. The two key expected outputs of the project are as follows:

  • Output 1: Reintegration of refugees and IDPs in Somalia strategically supported
  • Output 2: Solution provided for IDPs living in ex UNDP compound in Lido



What have we accomplished so far?

The displacement Project contributed to the following results:

  • The project initiation phase has started and the main objective of the project initiation plans is to provide strategic development support to the office of DSRSG/RR to develop a comprehensive Durable Solutions Strategy (DSS) and to develop project document for a flagship displacement Programme.
  • The project is anticipated to  tackle the protractedness situation of displacement as a development challenge as it keeps IDPs in marginalized situations and may undermine the resilience of already vulnerable host communities and add strains on weak local institutions, services and economies. The durable solutions for IDPs to be developed will be rights-based in order to end the social exclusion, marginalization and discrimination of IDPs. The project will be mainstreamed to allow IDPs access to basic services and ensure they have opportunities to voice their concerns before local authorities in a participative manner in the development process of the country. As a matter of fact, IDPs as Somalia citizens like anybody else are entitled to participate in the development of the country.
  • The project will focus on governmental actors as reasons for the protractedness of internal displacement in Somalia, including issues related to land and the role of gatekeepers, are of an essentially political nature. In addition, IDPs community will be encouraged to work hand in hand with local authorities, with whom the responsibility for safety and security rests. The project design has been synergized with other UNDP prep environment and energy projects while the Do No Harm guiding principle also plays a key role in achieving meaningful mainstreamed human rights.
