WHO WE ARE
Established under the leadership of the Mayor of Mogadishu and Governor of Benadir Region, the Durable Solutions Unit (DSU) is mandated to seek dignified and sustainable solutions for displacement affected communities (DACs).
The DSU is a Somali-led and Somali-owned approach to durable solutions with the overarching goal of phasing out displacement by strengthening the linkage between the humanitarian-development nexus. It serves as a channel of communication between the Federal Government of Somalia (FGS), development partners, private sector, civil society, DACs and BRA.
WHAT MOTIVATES US?
Our small, but diverse and talented team at the DSU are united under a common goal of championing a more inclusive and progressive capital city.
By working with communities, development partners and government institutions, this unit aims to foster a Somali-driven vision for sustainable solutions. Central to this is to empower DACs to rebuild their lives, their communities and utilize their valuable skills with dignity.
