ONGOING

Ongoing

The International Development Law Organization (IDLO) with the financial support of the European Union supported the Government of Somalia in the development of a new policy on IDPs and (Refugee) returnees, guidelines on evictions and an interim protocol on land distribution. The draft documents are currently under review by relevant governmental and judicial institutions prior to their submission to the Council of Ministers for approval. In parallel, the South West State of Somalia has already started the drafting process of an IDP policy and Jubaland has launched an initial consultation with the aim to develop its own policy on internal displacement.
