Agriculture & Food Security
Agriculture and Livelihoods Sector
In livelihoods, Community Development and Humanitarian Network (CoDHNet) empowers people to overcome poverty by helping them to increase the production capacity of the farmers
have access to food supply, improve access to water, generate more income to spend on the basic needs and most of all reduce vulnerability to droughts and conflicts. CoDHNet has been able to reach more people over the year in helping the communities to build their own capacity to respond to crises. CoDHNet frequently intervene in rural areas especially Lower shabelle where agriculture is a key economic sector. CoDHNet also runs programmes in Gedo, Hiraan, Middle shabelle and Banadir regions.In our livelihood programmes CoDHNet targets the most vulnerable people in the community and focuses more on the women headed households as they are most vulnerable. To improve livelihoods, income and food security of communities in Somalia, CoDHNet assists them with a broad range of activities.
Income Generating Activities
CoDHNet implements income generating activities that act as both short term and long term programmes. This is through construction and rehabilitation of infrastructures in the community. The community members usually contribute to the work by providing labour which earns them income. These infrastructures which include canals for irrigation and water catchments and roads contribute a lot to the improvement of livelihoods in the communities. These programmes closely involve communities through the establishment of community committees who are involved in the maintenance of the infrastructures.
