Economic Development

Helping young people and adults develop the skills they need to lead more productive, peaceful, and self-sufficient lives is a core part of CoDHNet’s work. We collaborate with key people from local communities to co-create training programs that meet the specific skill requirements of each community.

Our training programs have an important, practical role to play in our humanitarian and development work.

This includes:

  • Helping vulnerable people improve their livelihoods or gain a new livelihood
  • To promote sustainable agricultural/livestock production technologies ensuring improved food security and reduction of food aid dependency level in Somalia
  • Promoting disaster risk reduction strategies at the community level
  • Encouraging good hygiene and sanitation practices for improved community health
  • To improve the socio-economic status of both rural and urban communities in south/ central Somalia by supporting various basic social and economic services
  • Promoting sustainable natural resource management to better protect livelihoods like pastoralism
