The South West State Drought Recovery Programme is a two-year action funded by the European Union with the overall objective of contributing to improved resilience and increased adaptive capacities of communities and households in Somalia to protect their livelihoods over continuing shocks. World Vision and the implementing partners ACF, ACTED, ADRA, PASOS and Shaqadoon will seek to address specific needs and constraints of agro-pastoral and peri-urban communities by supporting functioning and effective formal and informal groups, institutions, and governance systems that support resilience building at households and community levels. The focus will be on strengthening three key capacities namely: absorptive, adaptive and transformative capacities so that communities are able to adapt their livelihoods to stressed conditions; be organized for and have contingency resources to absorb shocks and stress; and have the governance mechanisms to manage livelihood resources, manage disaster risk reduction plans, build contingency resources, manage natural resources and mitigate conflict
