Profile At a Glance: The Use of Profiling in Somalia (Mogadishu, 2016)

Related Topics: Durable solutions

This is a snapshot of the collaborative profiling exercise on internal displacement in Mogadishu, which used the IASC Framework on Durable Solutions for IDPs as its base. As a result of the exercise and the endorsement of its recommendations, IDP durable solutions became a key chapter in the Somali national development plan. It informed planning for humanitarian and development interventions, such as the Somali Humanitarian Fund and the Urban Solutions Strategy, including the Somalia IDP Solutions Initiative supported by UNHCR and UNDP to develop a comprehensive durable solutions strategy for IDPs.

The exercise was led by an IDP Profiling Working Group supported by numerous actors, namely: the local authorities (the Somalia Disaster Management Agency of the Ministry of Interior and Federal Affairs, the Banadir Regional Administration), the Somalia Protection Cluster, as well as UN and NGO agencies (UNHCR, DRC, IOM, NRC, Save the Children, HINNA, Elman, DBG, UNICEF, UNOCHA, REACH, SSWC, Mercy Corps, Concern, IRC, ORDO, and the Somalia Shelter Clusters). JIPS provided critical technical and collaboration support throughout the process.
