ADR brings together years of hands-on experience and expertise working with community groups, local and International NGOs in diverse environments. This experience has revealed that the traditional Project Approach often ends up being a straitjacket and is the main reason behind the failure of numerous community groups to effectively take charge of their development agenda and programs.

We are one of the leading research firms in Somalia, with a portfolio that encompasses in-depth political economy analysis, Land Disputes, inland survey, baseline, business development, and service delivery in the public and private sectors.

We act as the mirror to various Humanitarian Organizations who wish to see the impact of their programs in the ground where we act as their local partner. Our team is dedicated and well experienced in Monitoring & Evaluation and uses the most advanced technologies that best suit the activities performed.

Political and Economic Analysis

ADR employs a macro level analysis assessing historical trends, interactions at the municipal level of political, security, economic and social processes and the diverse international stimuli. We work with various local professionals to achieve the desired outcome.

Dialogue & Reconcilliation

ADR has experienced experts with proven records  in conflict resolution, mediation and reconciliation. We have facilitated numerous sessions aimed at bringing communities together and have initiatives to help foster peace and unity in Somalia.

In 2020, ADR participated in an AMISOM Political Affairs sponsored peace initiative in support of South West State in building the capacity of traditional leaders in the mediation of local disputes.
ADR was also contracted by InterAID to assist in peace building activities and initiatives in Galmudug State Abudweek and Dhusamareeb in the year 2019.


ADR work with other civil society organizations in Somalia to hold the Government accountable and responsible for service delivery. ADR undertakes to inform the community on their rights to receive protection, services they want and economic support from the Federal Government, Regional Local and District Administration.

Somalia is a fragile country and it is known to be the worst in upholding rule of law. ADR is working to promote rule of law in Somalia through research and dissemination of information.
