Development Cooperation Planning Funds for Somalia


Finland supports Somalia through development cooperation. The bilateral cooperation in Somalia is guided by Finland's Development Cooperation in Somalia 2017–2020 document. It focuses particularly on supporting the realisation of the rights of women and girls; as well as building and strengthening of the core functions of the Somali state. The document is based on the priorities identified in the Somalia's National Development Plan. The purpose of the Somalia planning funds is to improve the quality of the Finnish development cooperation in Somalia. Planning funds will be used for planning, preparation, monitoring, evaluation and auditing the Finnish development and statebuilding support in Somalia, as well as to promote results-based management. Planning funds can also be used for participating in Somalia aid coordination bodies' meetings. In addition, the planning funds can be used for visits related to Finland's development policy and development cooperation with Somalia, for organization of small-scale development policy/cooperation related trainings and workshops, as well as for development cooperation related communication. The purpose of the planning funds is to ensure that the regional department and the Embassy have adequate resources to implement results-based programming in Somalia. Both the Department for Africa and the Middle East, as well as the Embassy in Nairobi can use the planning funds. The allocation for the planning funds is 75.000€.
