Addressing the Needs of Returning IDPs (Triple Nexus)

Project Humanitarian aid
Borana -

Ethiopia’s humanitarian situation has been largely influenced by a number of causes, such as local ethnic conflict, climate change, and a high rate of displacement. The Oromo and Somali people’s unresolved interethnic strife and territorial disputes were aggravated by a protracted drought and intensified competition for limited resources in late 2016. Through the integration of humanitarian relief operations with initiatives that strengthen community resilience and manage conflict risks, this project will give Cordaid Ethiopia the chance to demonstrate how it can apply the triple nexus strategy.

Project Start Date – End Date
March 1, 2020 – December 31, 2021
Rural Agency for Community Initiatives Development and Assistance, HUNDEE Oromo Grassroots Development Initiative

The initiative will be carried out in kebeles in the Somali Region’s Liben zone, which borders the Oromo Region and is where IDPs have returned. Together with the target community, participants in informal justice systems, and local government, Cordaid and its local partner RACIDA will carry out conflict risk analysis and conflict risk reduction (mitigation) initiatives. Humanitarian relief will be delivered in a way that respects humanitarian values and lays the groundwork for livelihoods and peace initiatives by implementing a conflict-sensitive strategy.

People That We Work With

The project targets 17,567 people directly and 35,500 community members indirectly.


    To provide affected residents with better access to essential services, assistance for their livelihoods, and long-term peaceful cohabitation with the nearby Oromo group.
