Abstract

The aim of the National Urban Strategy for the Integrated Management of Prosopis in Somalia is to provide guidance and support for government ministries, municipalities, and civil society groups that are engaged in management of Prosopis in urban areas. This is the first Prosopis strategy and should eventually contribute to a wider National Policy for the Integrated Management of Prosopis that covers both urban and rural areas. In the meantime Prosopis has become a major urban issue and thus requires guidance and support in management approaches, particularly as many externally funded projects and local initiatives have already attempted to deal with the urban Prosopis problem but have caused more harm due to the introduction of inappropriate management techniques that can exacerbate the spread of Prosopis while draining human and financial resources.
