altThe OCVP was founded in 2009 to build evidence-based data on crime, conflict and violence for shaping policy, developing responses and monitoring progress, at time when the country is emerging from the prolonged conflict.

The OCVP exists to research, publish and act as a reservoir of the knowledge gathered from the pressing issues affecting Somalia and to consequently make it available when needed for conflict prevention, policy-making, programming, security, peacebuilding, environment and sustainable development. The OCVP also builds the capacity of all actors of conflict and violence in Somalia to bring them back to normalcy, peace, and change of attitudes, outlooks and beliefs.
