Silencing the guns in Somalia A documentary about peacebuilding and resource management in Central Somalia

Inter-clan dialogue (Dir-Marihan) in Galgadud region, December 2014

The Life & Peace Institute (LPI) and our partner, the ZamZam Foundation (ZZF), work with clans and sub-clans in central Somalia to transform conflicts. Since 2013 LPI and ZZF have invited groups together in a process of intra- and inter-clan dialogue to discuss resource management and create plans to better share vital common land and routes.

This documentary was compiled from raw footage that was collected to record the proceedings of the dialogues. It shows a snapshot of the first phase of the process. Phase 2 of the project is currently underway.
