UNICC is pleased to share that the UNDP Somalia office is now an UNICC Partner Organization.

UNDP in Somalia promotes Somali-led development solutions which address root causes of recurrent humanitarian crises and which set the stage for sustainable development. We support the Government of Somalia, local authorities, and civil society with development programmes that address the following focus areas: disaster reduction and resilience, peacebuilding and conflict resolution, people-centred governance and rule of law, economic recovery and environmental protection, and protecting and empowering women.

The Somalia Country Office has supported all branches of government to promote progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals, including supporting the National Federal Parliament to advance the 2030 Agenda, as part of the Arab States region, ‘Parliaments for Agenda 2030’ programme in partnership with the Islamic Development Bank. The Country Office also developed an innovative SDG 16 monitoring initiative focusing on assessing impact for citizens of Rule of Law initiatives. Under these initiatives UNDP supports the Government to increase access to justice, security and rule of law across the country with the support of donor partners such as Japan, the European Union, Germany and the Netherlands.
