Where we work
ReDSS was established in 2015 to help aid actors make good on their stated aspiration to help those displaced find more durable solutions. Therefore, our mission is to translate evidence and knowledge into better aid responses that promote durable solutions for displacement-affected communities. We do this on behalf of our 14 NGO members who work with these communities in the Horn of Africa and Great Lakes Regions.
Established in 2018, the ReDSS Ethiopia Country Unit emerged through a strategic partnership with the European Union Trust Fund and UNHCR. Our focus is to bolster sustainable and development-oriented responses for refugees and host communities in Ethiopia aligned with the Comprehensive Refugee Response Framework (CRRF) approach.
Established in 2018, the ReDSS Kenya Unit is dedicated to enhancing durable solutions for displacement-affected communities in Kenya. Our approach involves informing programming and policies that promote the integration of displacement-affected communities, enabling them to lead safe, dignified, and productive lives.
Established in 2016, the ReDSS Somalia Country Unit is built upon the Somalia Solutions Analysis and collaboration among ReDSS members. This partnership is focused on enhancing coordination, addressing capacity needs, and fostering collective knowledge management to inform and strengthen the overall response to displacement in Somalia.
Established in 2020, the ReDSS Great Lakes Unit was founded as a coordination and information hub to increase the displacement-affected communities’ potential to integrate sustainably and live safe, dignified, and productive lives. The overall objective is to improve durable solutions programming and policies to support their inclusion.
