The Regional Durable Solutions Secretariat (ReDSS) and Somalia’s UN Resident Coordinator’s Office (RCO) in Somalia have adopted the solutions framework as a planning and evidence-base tool in the current context of the Somali returns and (re)integration process. ReDSS commissioned an area based joint solutions analysis focusing on Lower Juba in Somalia in order to better and more consistently operationalise (re)integration plans for the Somali returnees coming from Kenya. The Solutions framework is to be considered as an analytical baseline, whose progress will be assessed on a regular basis taking into account a fast changing context in Somalia. The rating will be reviewed and updated in the first quarter of 2017 to reflect newly available information. The Solutions Framework is also currently being used in the Horn of Africa region, by both humanitarian and development actors, to work more effectively and consistently in the search and realization of solutions for displacement affected communities.
ReDSS and partners are developing District based Solutions Analyses for displacement affected communities in Somalia using the ReDSS Solutions framework to inform safe and dignified (re)integration programing in Lower Juba (Kismayo), Bay (Baidoa) and Benadir (Mogadishu). A key outcome is the development of this solutions analysis for Lower Juba to inform multi-sectoral rights and needs-based plans and programmes. Analysis is based on available data for the 31 outcome level indicators of the Solutions framework which is to be considered as an analytical baseline, whose progress will be assessed on a regular basis. Rating will be reviewed and updated in the first quarter of 2017 to reflect newly available information. ReDSS is conducting the same Analysis in Benadir (Mogadishu) and Bay region, with a particular emphasis on Baidoa district.
The Durable Solutions framework, adapted from the IASC Framework on Durable Solutions for Internally Displaced Persons, has been developed by the Regional Durable Solutions Secretariat (ReDSS) using 30 indicators organised around physical, material and legal safety to measure durable solutions achievements in a particular context. The framework analysis serves as an evidence base to enable relevant stakeholders to work more effectively and consistently in the search and realization of durable solutions. This infographic offers a snapshot in time to assess to what extent local integration for refugees in Uganda have been achieved.
This review is part of a series aiming at piloting the ReDSS framework in different operational and policy contexts in the region, in order to test the indicators and to collect and record lessons learnt to adapt and improve it. ReDSS adapted the IASC Framework for Durable Solutions for IDPs to develop the ReDSS Solutions framework for displacement affected communities.
