In the Horn of Africa, clan linkages across the state borders of Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia mean that conflict cannot be resolved in isolation. We work to support local, national and cross-border peacebuilding in the region, as well as supporting the peace process in the Ogaden region of Ethiopia.

The Ogaden region in Ethiopia (also known as Somali Regional State and Somali region of Ethiopia) has been at the center of instability in the Horn of Africa, a cause of inter-state wars between Ethiopia and Somalia in the 1960s and 1970s, and a proxy arena for conflict between Ethiopia and Eritrea. Since 1994, the Ogaden National Liberation Front has fought an armed insurgency against the Government of Ethiopia. This conflict impoverishes the lives of millions people.
