DFID/NOVIB Funded NGO Consortium Response to Drought in Togdheer, Sool, Bari/ Nugaal Regions
This is a summary of the June 2005 evaluation of the NGO Consortium response to drought in Togdheeer, Sool, Sanaag and Bari/ Nugaal in Somaliland. The consortium response to drought was meant to provide cash to targeted drought-affected households to help them meet their basic needs. Important among the needs were food, debt repayments to revitalise the overburdened community credit and other social support systems, purchase of water and rehabilitation of the chronically degraded environment that was key to livestock production under pastoralism. The consortium members were Oxfam-GB, Horn Relief and Norwegian People’s Aid. The intervention took six months – January to June 2005, and was implemented by the consortium partners, either directly or through local Non-Governmental Organisations.
