The Talo Wadaag (Phase II) is a four-year Sida funded programme that builds on Phase I that was completed in December 2021. The overall goal of the Talo Wadaag (phase II) programme is to strengthen Somali citizen engagement in governance, conflict prevention and management. Specific outcomes include 1) Increased participation and ownership of governance processes in Somalia and Somaliland; 2) Increased inclusion of women, youth and marginalised groups in governance, conflict prevention and management; 3) Sustainable conflict transformation at the community and state levels; and 4) Regional and international strategies for peace and development are more informed by evidence of effective peacebuilding practices and resilience.
