The paper is mainly based on reviews, monitoring and assessments carried out for the last seven years, with the latest successfully completed in M/Shabelle during 1st term of 2003, enriched with an analysis conducted during one-day workshop in Mogadishu (June, 20/2003) by Banadir Livestock Professional Associations (BENALPA) and ARAN Organization a member of Resource Management Somali Network. The organized civil societies are willing to take a pro-active role in sustainable development for their respective Communities.

 

Rangeland health evaluation matrix and social indicators were applied during surveys. PRA approach has been promoted in identifying priority needs of the Communities.

 

The contents of the study reflect the views and concerns of ARAN and BENALPA networks, therefore it’s indispensable to share the outcome with all relevant stakeholders and contribute to the efforts for sustainable livelihood improvements in Mid-Long Term of Central and Southern Somalia Communities.

A specific purpose of the paper is to highlight the root causes and the factors that constrain to livestock sector, the most important single industry that Somali community is highly dependent for livelihoods, which in the past contributed about 80% of export values and 50% of GDP of the Country. Another purpose is to effectively manage range resources of Somalia that comprises about 90% of its Land area and supports livelihood of approximately 63% of the population in the case of central and southern Somalia.

 

On the other hand it seems necessary to prioritize and shape possible future interventions meant for development to the rural communities in the area, to cope with problems experienced in the past.
