Listen to local voices in Somalia
On 7 May 2013 the Federal Government of Somalia and the UK Government will co-host a second international conference in London on Somalia.
Ahead of the conference, Saferworld and our partner organisations conducted consultations with a range of non-state and civil society representatives to discuss the themes of the conference. The consultations have fed into a series of recommendations to the Somali authorities and the international community on priority concerns that need to be addressed in order for reconstruction to be successful.
