Somaliland, 6 May 13
The Sustainable Employment Creation and Improved Livelihoods for Vulnerable Communities in Mogadishu (SECIL) project has developed a manual titled Practical Field Guide to Building Construction for Post-conflict Infrastructure Rehabilitation and Development. It details the essential parts of a building structure and provides information about standardized quality benchmarks, context-specific testing methods, skilled working principles for various construction sectors, and essential occupational safety standards.

The manual, which will be revised and translated into Somali, aims to provide a centralized source of information for the sharing of skills and techniques, and will assist in building the capacities of local masons, supervisors, and construction personnel. A training of trainers was conducted from 17 to 21 March in Hargeisa to test the manual and equip future trainers with the relevant expertise.
