Armed conflicts constitute main obstacles to sustainable development. They create enormous human suffering and make pathways out of poverty more difficult. By 2030, OECD estimates that over 60% of the world’s poor will be living in countries affected by conflict and fragility. Total disbursement to conflict prevention, peace and security was SEK 733 million in 2016. 58% of all Sida support had peace and security as principal or significant objective.
MAIN AREAS OF SUPPORT
FAO promotes the use and scale up of Cash+ as a flexible tool for promoting resilience and social protection. By providing cash transfers plus agricultural inputs, assets and/or training, FAO’s approach to Cash+ enables beneficiaries to address their immediate needs while supporting their livelihoods and productive capacity. The combined interventions can have powerful impact, including improving households’ agricultural production, income generation, asset ownership, economic empowerment, as well as dietary diversity and food security.
Girls’ education and climate change are currently two of the most topical global issues in the development arena. Due to a myriad of limiting factors, more girls around the world are falling through the cracks in terms of their educational access, retention, and learning. At the same time, many countries and regions are facing more frequent and more intense climate-related extreme weather events such as heat waves, floods and droughts.
ProCap aims to strengthen the collaborative response of protection agencies and non-protection mandated organisations. To do this, it deploys senior personnel with proven protection expertise at field, regional and global operations and trains mid-level protection staff from standby partners and humanitarian organisations. The Project objectives and activities are guided by the 2014-2016 ProCap Strategy.
Project Governance / Management
For UNICEF Somalia, 2016 was a year where we succeeded in making important progress for children’s rights despite significant challenges.
During the year, the Federal Government of Somalia adopted the country’s first National Development Plan in 30 years. UNICEF ensured that it included child-focused data and a multi-sectoral nutritional approach coherent with the Scaling Up Nutrition Movement. Additionally, we emphasized social protection and resilience as key elements supporting improved access to basic services.
MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Last year broke records, but for all the wrong reasons. More people were forcibly displaced than at any time since the Second World War. Huge numbers needed humanitarian assistance to meet their most basic needs. Our budget, as a result, was the largest yet.
The Community Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM) is a methodology for treating acute malnutrition in young children using a case-finding and triage approach. Through the CMAM program, children who are severely malnourished are managed through the outpatient therapeutic care (OTP), while children with complication are treated through the in-patient program (Stabilization Centers-SC).
Since conflict erupted in Yemen in March 2015, Yemenis, Somalis, national returnees and people of other nationalities have fled Yemen into the Horn of Africa, namely Djibouti, Ethiopia, Somalia and Sudan.
Refugees, asylum seekers and migrants continued to move in complex flows from the Horn of Africa and Yemen region. Migration and displacement dynamics remained complex this quarter, with ongoing migration, new displacement, and simultaneous return movements.
Irregular Movement from the Horn

Gaalkacyo has been a divided city since 1993, however, the renewed conflict is fundamentally driven by a struggle for land and resources and was triggered by the implementation of the federal system.
The lack of genuine reconciliation, two administrations within the city, negative perceptions of each other among the two communities, weak central authority, and unhelpful media coverage have contributed to the continuation of the conflict.
