Our Work

The Office of the Special Envoy works to advance drought prevention, preparedness, and response efforts through awareness raising, resource mobilization, and technical policy advice. Since his appointment in May 2022, the Special Presidential Envoy for Drought Response Special Abdirahman Abdishakur has been advocating internationally on behalf of the people of Somalia and particularly those affected by the drought crisis. As a result, greater engagement and contributions have been made by international donors to the drought response and resilience-building efforts.
