Pact's work in Somalia is fostering peace and reconciliation among historically divided groups, improving people's security and quality of life both within the country and in neighboring nations.

We're using an approach that will leave a lasting impact. We're building the capacity of local governments and organizations to help citizens resolve disputes without violence or external intervention, and we're improving cooperation among Somali peacebuilders, who now run joint response units to address problems and prevent retaliatory attacks. We're also strengthening conflict-management systems and regional and national institutions to stem cross-border conflict.
