Country Brief on the Humanitarian-Development-Peace Nexus

The crisis in Somalia is among the most complex and long-standing in the world. Three decades of political instability, conflict and violence, and recurrent climatic shocks have disrupted livelihoods and basic service delivery, devastated human capital and physical infrastructure, and contributed to severe impoverishment, food insecurity and protracted displacement. Three additional shocks – a desert locust upsurge, extensive flooding, and the COVID-19 pandemic– deepened the scale and scope of humanitarian need in 2020, and their consequences will continue to exacerbate
humanitarian needs in 2021. The response led by the Government, local authorities and the international community addresses the most urgent needs, but additional development efforts are needed to implement sustainable solutions.
