Cross cutting and capacity development

  • The SIP project support the capacity development of the Federal Government of Somalia as well as the State of Puntland. The Project aims to enhance the performance in terms of efficiency and effectiveness of the partner government institutions through three key components of support aimed at overall gender mainstreamed institutional capacity development of the government institutions:

  • Somali authorities have identified empowerment of women, through greater asset ownership and participation in decision-making processes, as a priority for peace and development. To facilitate Somali stakeholders to achieve this, in 2012 UNDP initiated a new project on Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment (GEWE) in Somalia focusing primarily on advocacy initiatives in partnership with civil society and public institutions in Somaliland, Puntland and South Central Somalia.

  • As a trusted development partner and co-sponsor of UNAIDS, UNDP’s main focus is to build national capacities of government at all levels and work closely with civil society to support a coordinated and effective response to the HIV & AIDS epidemic (UNDP strategic plan, 2008-2011).

  • The Federal Government of Somalia (FGS), guided by the New Deal Somali Compact and Vision 2016, has been facilitating the process of forming member states in an inclusive manner, consistent with the Provisional Constitution and Somalia’s laws.
