UNDP partners with people at all levels of society to help build nations that can withstand crisis, and drive and sustain the kind of growth that improves the quality of life for everyone. On the ground in 177 countries and territories, we offer global perspective and local insight to help empower lives and build resilient nations.
UNDP Somalia works through partnerships with the Transitional Federal Government, the Government of Puntland and the Government of Somaliland, civil society, local and international non-government organisations (NGOs), as well as sister agencies including: FAO, ILO, UNAIDS, UNCDF, UN-Habitat, UNHCR, UNICEF, UNOCHA, UNODC, ONOPS and UNSOA. UNDP collaborates with a large number of bilateral and multi-lateral partners, and in 2011 received contributions from UNDP's Bureau for Crisis Prevention and Recovery (BCPR), Central Emergency Relief Fund (CERF), Denmark, UK Department for International Development (DFID), European Commission (EC), Germany, Global Fund, Greece, Italy, Japan, Norway, South Korea, Sweden, UAE, UNODC and USAID.
UNDP Somalia has set up partnership agreements with some of these donors which allow for greater flexibility in fund allocation to individual projects, multi-year funding and reduction of transactions through consolidated reporting and review at policy level. Donor consultations are organized on a regular basis and focus on overall performance under the partnership as well as a shared risk analysis.
UNDP Somalia is currently working on expanding its partnerships with regional actors and funding agencies such as the League of Arab States and the Islamic Development Bank as well as establishing innovative partnerships with the private sector.
