Aid Partnerships - A Vehicle to Strengthen NGOs in Somalia

This report examines the nature of the relationships between Somali NGOs and international aid organisations, with particular emphasis on capacity building and partnerships. The key points emerging are: partnerships between IAOs and SNGOs are often structured as sub-contracting relationships, where SNGOs deliver services to the contracting IAOs; capacity building efforts targeting the SNGO sector have been limited and ineffective so far, despite the fact that significant gaps are known and have been repeatedly acknowledged by SNGOs and IAOs alike; and there are low levels of trust between SNGOs and IAOs and on the part of donors towards SNGOs.
