Support for the creation of the violence observatory in Somalia and support in methodology for the victimization survey / 2009

Technical Assistance mission, Somalia

 

In September 2009, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in charge of programs for Somalia requested support from ICPC to lead two projects:  helping UNDP design and set up a violence observatory in Somalia and assisting them in implementing a first victimization survey.

ICPC provided the conceptual basis for the violence observatory in Somalia in collaboration with the various UNDP partners involved in the project, including the Somalian University of Hargeisa and the NGO “Safer World”. At the end of the mission, terms of reference were given to the partners, specifying their respective missions, along with a chronological guide for the creation of the observatory.

ICPC also actively participated in the development of Somalia’s first victimization survey. In partnership with UNDP, the Somalian NGO SOCDA and the Japanese NGO JCCP, ICPC was responsible for contributing to the survey’s methodology.

Subsequent to this mission, ICPC was integrated as a member of the Observatory’s Scientific Committee and the creation of the Somalian Community Safety Framework, a foundation tool of the UNDP strategy in Somalia.
