Reconstruction of Somalia


The support is channeled to Somalia through CDRD (Community-Driven Recovery and Development) co-fund that supports Somali reconstruction and development. Reconstruction and stabilization and capacity building of local government are important in Somalia, which is emerging from a long period of violence. The CDRD project is at its third implementation phase. During this phase support to reconstruction and stabilization is directed to the central and southern Somalia, namely to two districts (Hiraan and Benadir district municipal areas). Communities are supported so that they are able to design and implement reconstruction and development projects. In order to ensure wider comprehensiveness and sustainability of the project local government structures will be strengthened and their capacity development will be supported. As a result, the communities have been empowered in the selected districts target areas, local government structures have become stronger and are better able to respond to the development and security needs of the community. Further, members of the targeted communities are able to define and discuss the differences in a constructive spirit, and they have improved access to social and economic services. CDRC approach was originally developed by the World Bank. In Somalia, Danish Refugee Council (DRC) is responsible for CDRC's implementation.
