Increase participation

UNDP supports the Government of Somalia and Somali people to ensure all Somalis can have their say in political decision making that affects their lives. We work together with UN partners to support constitutional review, electoral processes and an effective, accountable parliament. 

Under our Country Programme 2018-2020 we are supporting national dialogues to deepen federalism and to boost the capacity of women and young members of parliament to be agents of change,  enabling women’s increased participation in political processes and leadership functions. Working together with UNSOM, UNDP is supporting the development and  implementation of an electoral process aligned to SDG Goals, which includes developing a gender-responsive electoral law, a nationwide election administration capacity, registration and regulation of political parties, voter registration, and strengthening of civil society, while advocating for political leadership’s commitment to transparency and accountability.
