Emergency Shelter/NFI Cluster, Somalia


The Shelter Cluster facilitated Focus Group Discussions (FGDs) on solar lighting, with IDPs in Hargeisa Somaliland. The aim of the discussions were to: 1) Assess the present situation of light provision in households within three IDP settlements; 2. Understand and correlate information on light provision and the areas where women feel most insecure within the settlement; and 3. Pre-test the suitability of four types of house hold solar lamps, especially for women, in the three settlements. Findings indicate that solar lighting systems play a crucial role in averting gender based violence within the settlements.
