I'm very interested in following along and learning more about this project. I see this as an effective way of having a positive impact on urban communities in Somalia, and would like to add a couple of my first thoughts/questions that came to mind when reading the above descriptions. Perhaps you can add more information to address them, and think about them moving forward:
1. Do you have any estimates on the reach of your proposed project? It would be helpful to get an idea of how many people a certain dollar amount or a certain number of training events could reach, as well as information on planned dissemination methods of the written content to further spread the knowledge.
2. I would like to know more about the effects of climate change in urban settings in Somalia. You state above "Climate change has deep effects on internally displaced populations in Somalia. For many, climate change has caused displacement to urban slums.", but do you have any more detailed information on this? Since the challenge is focused on it, I think a further explanation could strengthen this idea.

Good luck!
