Level of Gender Equity and Women’s Empowerment in Somaliland
Somaliland reclaimed its independence by nullifying the union with Somalia in 1991, which coincided with the collapse of the Somali Republic. Since the declaration of the Republic Somaliland, both the government and the people have focused with conviction towards rehabilitation and state-building starting with local initiatives at the grassroots level. As a result of 20 years of reconstruction experience, the country has achieved considerable progress in all aspects of life. A government based on constitutional democracy was established, both private and public institutions were rebuilt, and the socio-economic indicators improved largely due to the contribution and collaboration among all the citizens of the country.
