Somali Institute of Development Studies (SIDS) is a development and resilience-focused think tank which provides high-quality capacity development, research, policy briefs and publications, and graduate programmes. The institute seeks to contribute to Somalia’s economic development and political stability through innovation, research and capacity development. Its key study areas are development and poverty, resilience, markets, health and nutrition, environment and disaster risk reduction, peacebuilding, conflict resolution and mediation using indigenous methods, and stabilisation and durable solutions. SIDS believes that development is the sum of contributions from different groups and institutions. Therefore, SIDS has established partnerships with the federal and state line ministries, academic institutions, CBOs and other I/NGOs.
