General

The ever-growing displacement crisis in Somalia necessitates a two-pronged geographical targeting approach to limiting and reducing the IDP caseload. IOM-led Danwadaag Consortium overall objective with this project is to reduce the IDP caseload by a significant margin and enhance government capacity at various levels. The project proposes firstly, the development and implementation of a comprehensive exit strategy or referral pathway which is required for the vulnerable IDPs concentrated in primary urban centres (Banadir, Baidoa, Kismayo). Secondly, Danwadaag will target strategic intermediary towns (Xudur, Berdale, Doolow and Baardheere), where initial IDP caseloads have been recorded, and present the potential to buffer primary urban centres from the shock of continued mass displacement flows, which jeopardise hard fought resilience gains in cities like Baidoa. The estimated target reach is 502,320 vulnerable displacement affected individuals across the targeted regions of South West State (SWS), Jubaland, and Banadir. Overall, this project prioritizes tenure security, improved living conditions, and livelihood opportunities for vulnerable communities while also incorporating a crisis response mechanism. Furthermore, the program focuses on knowledge generation and policy influence at both local and global levels, reinforcing its commitment to evidence-based, coordinated, and sustainable solutions to Somalia's displacement challenges.
