OUR FOCUS

Democratic governance
and peacebuilding

Peace and stability

UNDP supports the Government of Somalia and Somali people to build peace and stability through democratic governance programmes that focuses on inclusive politics, rule of law, security, justice, human rights and effective inititutions. Somalia has made huge strides in peacebuilding and development in recent years.  In 2016 it held an electoral process that saw a peaceful transition of power,  and following advocacy by Somali civil society groups with the support of the UN,  twenty-five percent of people elected to parliament were women. A joint Government led, UN supported reconciliation, peacebuilding and federalism process led to four new federal member states, Galmadug, Hirshabelle, Jubaland and South West State, emerging during 2015-2017.

During 2016 the country also developed the 2017-2019 National Development Plan (NDP), with the support of UNDP, which prioritised Somali led development goals and objectives.  All of UNDP's work with Government, civil society and UN partners are aligned to the National Development Plan, to its inclusive politics roadmap, and to its security, justice and rule of law priorities.
