NEXUS is a platform for change in response to the contemporary challenges to Somalia and Somaliland (http://NEXUSom.org/). The main goal of NEXUS platform is to transform the humanitarian, development, and peace ecosystem. The platform, led by eight pioneering Somali NGOs, aspires to advance a locally driven agenda for change by building partnerships between communities, civil society, and the public and private sectors as well as through the implementation of integrated and sustainable interventions across the triple NEXUS of humanitarian, peace, and development.
Founded in 2019, NEXUS is a paradigm-shifting platform that is now comprised of eight core members: Centre for Peace and Democracy (CPD), Gargaar Relief and Development Organization (GREDO), Horn of Africa Voluntary Youth Committee (HAVOYOCCO), KAALO Aid and Development, Save Somali Women and Children (SSWC), Social-Life and Agriculture Development Organization (SADO), Taakulo Somaliland Community (TASCO), and Wajir South Development Association (WASDA). These members possess wide-ranging technical capacities and represent communities across all Federal Member States of Somalia and Somaliland. NEXUS has two international partners who are committed to the localization agenda – Oxfam and Save the Children.
NEXUS embodies the next evolutionary step of the Somali aid system, pioneering a locally led approach to delivering integrated nexus (peacebuilding, humanitarian aid and development) interventions. By breaking the silos of humanitarian aid, development and peacebuilding and by creating much-needed spaces for local organizations to lead the way in seeking, scaling and integrating solutions across these sectors, NEXUS proposes local leadership as more than a means of realizing localization commitments.
NEXUS is strategically investing in the institutions of civil society and government, advancing a new, community-driven framework that creates space for local organizations, partners in government and the private sector to lead the way in identifying, scaling and integrating community owned and driven solutions to humanitarian, development and peacebuilding needs.
