The Advancing Strong Partnerships for Inclusive and Resilient Economic Development (ASPIRE) project was implemented in Somaliland and Puntland with the aim to promote inclusive and resilient economic development, drawing on the Territorial Approach for Local Development (TALD). In Somaliland, ASPIRE focused on Berbera District as a hub for inclusive local economic development (LED) in the region and as an entry point to address regional income disparities.
