The event aimed to increase knowledge and coordination between parliament and government ministries on the 2030 agenda.

The “District and Regions Self-Administration Law” is one of the main legal frameworks that will set out how local government can deliver decentralised services to communities at a local level.
The joint Government and UN project, called Midnimo II, will work to support livelihoods and access to housing for displaced communities in Hirshabelle.
Women from across Somalia attended the Convention to give their inputs to the Charter, which called for fifty percent representation for women across all levels of government, for prevention of violence against women and girls, and socio ecomomic rights.
The five projects launched under the Fund will address displacement, stabilisation, reconciliation, state-building and land disputes, as well as promoting gender sensitivity and focusing on women as peace builders.
