UNDP works with government partners, non-governmental organizations, and civil society to design projects that contribute to real, measurable improvements in the lives of the Somali people. Through support to local government, UNDP helps local councils to deliver much needed services, such as access to water supplies and health care. With communities, UNDP is engaged in building or rehabilitating access roads, markets and irrigation systems. In order to restore security and basic government functions, UNDP supports the police, the rule of law, public finance management and key governance institutions. UNDP is also increasing awareness on and advocating for the Millennium Development Goals and human development in Somalia.
