Somaliland Disaster Risk Reduction
In the drought ridden region of Somaliland, together with partner World Relief, CWR is equipping 5 villages to cope with and adapt to drought and seasonal changes. This program is building more resilient communities in the midst of great adversity. Pastoralists in the Salahley District, including women, are improving their livestock productivity through the protection of forest and grazing land, the restoration of degraded range land, the improvement of the infiltration of rainwater into the soil, the improvement of fodder production, and livestock management and veterinary services. The community will participate in holistic economic development through farmer field schools for pastoralists, women’s savings and loans groups, and model homestead management training for the most vulnerable families.
