|Governance, Rule of Law & Security|
The Governance and Rule of Law Programme responds directly to three of the four outcome areas outlined in the new country programme: capacity-building for peace and human security, strengthened governance and rule of law institutions, systems, practices and services, and gender equality.
Under the new country programme, the previously distinct Governance and Rule of Law programmes have been merged as part of an ongoing process to build links and synergies between these two programmes. Project areas currently include local governance, institution building, access to justice, police and community safety.
Rule of Law and Security
UNDP's Rule of Law and Security Programme works towards improved security and protection under the law for all Somalis. As such, it seeks to advance human development by strengthening national and local capacities to prevent, mitigate and cope with the impact of violence.
The Governance Programme promotes national and local institutions and serves to steward Somalia's establishment of good governance and public accountability in an environment where government functions are emerging or non-existent. UNDP's objective is to address the three identified pillars of Somali needs:
Toward achieving this agenda, UNDP partners with several UN and non-UN agencies and supports Somali-led initiatives through various joint programmes or bilateral arrangements.
The Governance Programme has currently three projects:
• Local Governance - UNDP, together with four other UN agencies, works to place communities at the core of local development, to ensure that the services provided are relevant to a given community and that the local councils are accountable to the people and transparent.
• Somali Institutional Development Project - SIDP seeks to implement institutional development and capacity building first by targeting the ‘machinery of government' (parliament and central agencies), followed by professional institutions responsible for public administration.
• Constituion-making Support Project - UNDP and Somali partners designed the Somali Institution Development Project for south central Somalia, Puntland and Somaliland.
