Nordic International Support Foundation (NIS)

The Nordic International Support Foundation (NIS) is a Norwegian-registered, non-profit foundation engaged in stabilisation and reconciliation initiatives in conflict and post-conflict areas. NIS’ primary areas of intervention are institutional development, public service delivery, and conflict resolution.

NIS first established its presence in Somalia in late 2011 with the implementation of a pilot solar street lighting project in Mogadishu designed to increase the legitimacy of the local administration by increasing its capacity to deliver public services. The success of the pilot project attracted donor interest in NIS’ approach to stabilisation and NIS was able to develop and diversify its project portfolio to include a variety of infrastructure delivery and public financial management (PFM) projects, as well as providing logistical help to donors. In the ensuing five years, NIS Somalia has ramped up its presence in Somalia to include more than 30 staff and three offices from which it has implemented over 45 projects.

In order to jumpstart the stabilisation process, NIS’ activities in Somalia are focused mainly on rapidly implemented high visibility, multiple impact projects. A key aspect of our approach is the systematic involvement of the authorities – at the local, regional, and federal levels – with the local communities actively involved in the identification, prioritisation, planning and implementation of projects. Each project is designed to maximise the potentials for boosting economic opportunities, security, and normalising/establishing a relationship between the general population (including private sector businesses) and the government.
