Policy Project SUCEED Somalia

The ceaseless conflict and insecurity that have continually plagued Somalia too often overshadow the people, communities, and livelihoods caught in between. Underlying these challenges are demographic stresses and socio-economic tensions that must be properly addressed for any meaningful progress to be made. With a budget of $20m, The Somali Unified Canadian Collaboration for Economic and Educational Development (SUCCEED) Project will help address these underlying challenges through two objectives: 1. Informal facilitation of peace talks and peace education training sessions with regional clan leaders. 2. Economically empowering regional Somali women to increase their participation in decision making. The project seeks an ultimate outcome of helping to resolve broader socio-economic tensions and political conflict in the country
