Strategic Objective: Achieve a stable and peaceful federal Somalia through inclusive political processes. UNDP’s approach to support inclusive politics in Somalia is through three strategic areas: state building, support to constitution-making, and support to elections. New programmes on constitutional process, electoral support and parliament process, will build on these key themes.
Strengthening state structures and supporting stable and peaceful political processes is one of the core priorities of UNDP in Somalia. Building democratic institutions, such as a functioning parliament with a robust constitution, is crucial for Somalia’s transformation to a peaceful and prosperous nation. Further, UNDP will provide stable support in the build-up to national elections set for 2016.more

The result of their work must coincide and be the elements that take the country forward.” - Mohammed Osman Jawari Speaker of the Federal Parliament of Somalia. more
