Five agencies, World Vision – WV, Norwegian Refugee Council – NRC, Concern
Worldwide – CWW, Danish Refugee Council – DRC and TASCO –Taakulo Somalliland Community, have formed the Somaliland Durable Solutions Consortium (SDSC) which aims at addressing the root causes of mixed migration in Somaliland. In particular, WV is leading the consortium partners including DRC, CWW, NRC and TASCO in Somaliland to contribute towards generation and application of sustainable solutions that address negative effects caused by irregular migration on displacement affected communities. The Consortium is also partnering with the Joint IDP Profiling Service (JIPS) to manage and develop its knowledge resources; the Regional Mixed Migration Secretariat (RMMS) to source information on migration trends; and the Regional Durable Solutions Secretariat (ReDSS) to provide capacity development among its partners on the solutions agenda in Somalia. The Action proposed builds on already existing experiences of the five agencies in implementing and managing programs amongst host and displacement affected communities in the main districts in South Central Somalia, Puntland and Somaliland that have continuously exhibited significant trends in mixed migration out-flows. Their primary approach to actualize this goal is by ensuring displaced persons, returnees, host communities and persons at risk of migration access and enjoys integrated durable solutions within Somalia.
The Somalia NGO Consortium was established in 1999 and has since grown to become an effective network of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) working together to improve international aid coordination and raise the presence and profile of NGO representation within the aid coordination structure for Somalia. The NGO Consortium maintains its presence through its offices in Hargeisa, Garowe, Mogadishu and Nairobi.
The reach of our services greatly extends beyond the immediate membership. We also work closely with INSO Somalia (formerly NSP and SPAS) in providing support to International and National NGOs so as to facilitate their safe and secure operations in Somalia / Somaliland.
