Consolidated Appeal for Somalia

OCHA Somalia drafts a Consolidated Appeal (CAP) for Somalia annually with the Government and the members of the humanitarian community, through which resources are mobilized to implement programmes to meet the needs of the Somali people affected by emergency in a way that illustrates clearly the total range of needs and its relationship with the plans and appeals of the actors involved. The Somalia CAP is submitted to the donors at the end of each year.

The goal of the Consolidated Appeal is to promote effective and appropriate responses to emergencies, to facilitate a coordinated response by all those involved in meeting the emergency needs of the affected population in Somalis by  (a) ensuring that priority actions are focused upon those in greatest need of humanitarian assistance; (b) integrating to the extent possible, humanitarian activities to promote cost effective and efficient relief and recovery activities and to avoid duplication; (c) promoting, through the process of consolidation, closer collaborative emergency responses amongst all relief and recovery actors; (d) strengthening the capacities of the Somali governments to handle emergency relief and recovery.
