Lessons learned from the EU REINTEG Durable solutions consortia (2017-2020)

In recent years, momentum at the political and policy levels on durable solutions has been matched by an expansion of the range and scale of durable solutions programming in Somalia. The European Union-funded RE-INTEG Programme (RE-INTEG) is a multi-year programme focused on the sustainable (re)integration of IDPs and returnees in Somalia. RE-INTEG was followed by two further durable solutions-focused programmes: the Danwadaag Solutions Consortium and the Durable Solutions Programme, funded by DfID and Danida respectively, and implemented by many of the agencies engaged in RE-INTEG.

The objective of this report is to document learning and promising practices from the EU RE-INTEG NGO-led programmes.  Its scope is limited to the programmes implemented by the Jubaland Solutions Consortium (JSC), Enhancing Integration of Displacement Affected Communities in Somalia (EIDACS), and Somaliland Durable Solutions Consortium (SDSC) consortia. The learning documented in this report focuses on the following 4 areas:

  • Programme strategy and approach, including the use of the IASC indicators
  • Programme consortium governance structures and coordination within/between consortia
  • Engagement with critical durable solutions stakeholders, particularly government representatives and displacement-affected communities (DACs)
  • Learning and programme adaptation.
