Non-governmental Organization based in Somalia

The Somalia NGO Consortium is a voluntary mechanism of NGOs for NGOs. Given the highly insecure environment, the complexity of the operating environment, and the large numbers of agencies working in Somalia, a coordinated voice is critical to successfully conduct development and humanitarian work in Somalia.

Formed in 1999, we bring together local and international NGOs working in Somalia in order to share information and analysis on key issues, facilitate closer coordination and joint advocacy, and improve representation with stakeholders including local authorities, the UN system and donors.

Sustainable progress in security, justice and accountability in Somalia, building on gains already made, continues to be the shared goal.
