Who We Are

CFESS is a research centre based in Somaliland committed to fostering knowledge about the social, political, security and environmental dynamics in the Horn of Africa. Through conducting applied research and sharing our findings in publications, workshops, trainings and conferences, we aim to provide practitioners, academics and policy makers with data that will promote sustainable production practices.  CFESS is comprised of a team of Somaliland-based researchers from a variety of fields, ranging from sociology and law to agronomy and religious studies.

As with healthy ecosystems, our diversity is our strength.
