The meeting which is the first of its kind as part of a wider resilience program aimed at strengthening HRDs resilience and creating a good climate for collaboration between the CSOs and local authorities in Somalia which can substantially and positively contribute to the very survival of CSOs and HRDs in Somalia.
The HRDs resilience program will cover whole Somalia and its regions where Members of the CSHRDS are actively operating for the human rights Advocacy in order to improve the human rights situation in Somalia. Comparatively, Somalia has long way ahead to improve its human rights situation and create a good climate for tthe nonviolent human rights Advocacy work undertaken by independent HRDs like the CSHRDS.
