Hargeisa Urban Household Economy Assessment

The Somalia Food Security Assessment Unit (FSAU) has embraced household food economy analysis to assess food security in rural areas of Somalia and Somaliland for the past seven years. Although one urban assessment was conducted in Hargeisa in 1998, urban areas have largely been neglected despite hosting a large percentage of the total population. With this in mind, the main objectives of this exercise were to develop for FSAU and FEWS-Net a common analytical framework for the baseline assessment and monitoring of food access in urban populations, and to use baseline food economy information to better monitor food security in Somalia. The main activity was to carry out primary and secondary data collection in Hargeisa, using key informants, to develop livelihood profiles of poor, middle income and better off households.

Land Matters in Mogadishu   RVI Rift Valley Forum and HIPS (2017)

Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia, has for more than two decades been one of the most highly contested cities in the world. Since the collapse of President Siyad Barre’s government in early 1991, it has been the object of both military and political struggles almost without interruption. The nature of conflict in the city has evolved since 1991, when warlords waged fierce street battles for control of neighbourhoods, damaging or destroying much of the city centre and prompting massive population displacement and occupation of land by newcomers.

Somalia housing land and property rights for somalias urban displaced women 2016

As of January 2015, UNHCR reports indicate an estimated 1.1 millioninternally displaced persons (IDPs) in Somalia, a country that hasendured over 20 years of armed conflict and devastating droughtconditions, and that has been labeled as one of the world’s worsthumanitarian crises. Similar to many other countries, land is importantas both a resource for livelihood and a symbol of status; and strongarguments have been made that competition for land and other naturalresources were an underlying cause of the civil wars. The varioussystems and rules that are used to manage and control access toland are a complex mosaic, bearing markers from the various pieces ofSomalia’s history: “Xeer,” the customary rules and traditions used bySomalia’s clan-based society; “Western” style laws from the periodsof colonialization by the Italian and British, as well as the predatory ruleof the Barre regime; and the steady influence of Islam throughout thecountry’s tumultuous history.

UN-Habitat in the Somali Region

Though the Somali region hit headlines around the world in the early 1990s, press coverage slowed to atrickle after foreign troops retreated from Somali shores in 1994. More recently, with heightened politicaltension and renewed violence in the centre and south, the international media put the Somali region backunder the spotlight. For the global audience, however, there remains a lost era of more than a decade. Afterthe civil war, the region was presumed to continue sinking into an anarchic world of violent inter-clan rivalryand recurrent humanitarian disasters. To understand the Somali region better, the last 10 to 15 years mustbe filled out, along with more distant Somali history.
