Improving Aid Delivery through Localisation in Somalia

On 6 September 2017, the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management of the Federal Government of Somalia, in collaboration with the UK Department for International Development (DFID), the Office of the Deputy Representative of the UN Secretary General, Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator for Somalia, and the Somalia NGO Consortium, convened a half-day workshop in Mogadishu with local and national responders from Somalia, titled, Improving aid delivery through localisation in Somalia. The meeting, which followed a similar two-day workshop in Nairobi in May 2017, brought together participants from the Somali government, the private sector, youth-led social media campaigns, local and international NGOs, and donors to explore ways in which actors could work together to improve aid delivery in Somalia.
