The purpose of this evaluation is to inform design and programming for DFID’s Somalia Stability Programme (SSP), the multi-donor Somalia Stability Fund (SSF), and the British Office for Somalia’s stabilisation efforts.

Iraq is not Afghanistan and it is not the Balkans, but lessons need to be learned from these two recent touchstones of humanitarian experience. There are similarities to Afghanistan in the expanse of the country and the regional socio-political dynamics. There are also similarities to the Balkans in the need to address a crisis with a relatively urbanized, highly educated and (formerly) well off population.
