Client: European Union

Somalia faces complex challenges impacting its political stability and societal well-being. The European Union is committed to fostering sustainable development, encouraging inclusive and eco-friendly economic growth, and strengthening resilience and social inclusion for Somalia’s progress.

The Technical Assistance and Partnership Facility unfolds through three essential components. Firstly, it boosts governmental capacity at both state and federal levels, with a specific focus on the Ministry of Planning. At the same time, technical experts are strengthening the identification, formulation, implementation, and monitoring of EU-funded programs in Somalia. This spans crucial areas such as climate change adaptation and social protection. The third component underscores the importance of nurturing partnerships and fostering policy dialogues between the EU and Somalia. Through these holistic efforts, the EU seeks to tackle Somalia’s challenges comprehensively, laying the foundation for sustainable development and stability, in alignment with the Somalia National Development Plan.
