Humanitarian Response Plan for Somalia

The Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) plan is prepared for a protracted or sudden onset emergency that requires international humanitarian assistance. The plan articulates the shared vision of how to respond to the assessed and expressed needs of the affected population. The development of a strategic response plan is a key step in the humanitarian programme cycle and is carried out only when the needs have been understood and analysed through the Humanitarian Needs Overview (HNO) or other joint needs assessment and analysis processes.

The Somalia 2015 HRP is a continuation of the three year (2013-2015) humanitarian appeal that seeks to provide integrated life-saving and resilience-strengthening assistance to people affected by the protracted crisis in Somalia. The overarching strategy of the three-year plan remains intact, however it has been refined each year to reflect the changes in the humanitarian and development context. The 2015 HRP retains three of the four strategic objectives from 2014: (i) provide timely and quality life-saving assistance to people in humanitarian crisis and emergency, (ii) enhance the scale and quality of humanitarian protection services and improve the broader protective environment through preventative measures, (iii) strengthen the resilience of vulnerable households and communities through livelihood support, and programmes for critical gaps in basic social services and social protection that complement disaster risk reduction, recovery and development interventions.
