Somalia: the challenges of operating in a protracted crisis

01.01.2016 - 31.12.2016

Besides living in extreme poverty, the people of Somalia suffer time and again from violence and climate shocks.  The fighting makes it difficult to provide any assistance.  The SDC supports the ICRC, one of the very few organisations that is able to operate throughout the country. In 2016, the SDC is contributing CHF 4 million for ICRC activities which are also aimed at providing people with the resources for medium and long-term development.

With the aim of improving the living conditions of the most vulnerable populations in Somalia, SDC is contributing CHF 6 million to the three-year Resilience Programme of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, which forms part of the FAO’s overall Somalia programme.
