|Area-Based Early Recovery|
The overall objective of the project is to support the recovery of Somali communities in regions affected by conflict, hazards, disasters and the movement of populations. It seeks to ensure a tangible increase in the income levels within the vulnerable communities through equitable and sustainable employment and income generation opportunities. Its geographical area of focus is the Bay and Middle Shabelle regions of South Central Somalia.
The project aims to rehabilitate social and productive types of infrastructure (agriculture improvement, livestock or other community economic opportunities mainly natural resource based) using labor intensive employment generation. In addition, the project works towards improving skills and knowledge in advocacy and in initiating ownership and participatory planning at the district and regional levels. Specific focus is given to promoting the role of women in recovery.
