The NAP Global Network’s support for Somalia’s NAP process started in October 2021. We have been working with the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change, Office of the Prime Minister, on developing monitoring, evaluation, and learning (MEL) strategies and carrying out vulnerability assessments for the livestock and fisheries sectors.
