PROGRESS TOWARDS THE 2030 AGENDA IN SOMALIA: A Companion to the UN Common Country Analysis 2020
With the pending expiry of the NDP-8, Somalia launched its Ninth Somalia National Development Plan (NDP-9) in December 2019 which articulates Somalia’s goals from 2020 to 2024. In response, the UN in Somalia commenced the development of a new UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNCF) to guide its collective work in support of the NDP-9 priorities.
As a key part of this process, at the beginning of 2020, the United Nations initiated the process of formulating a Common Country Analysis (CCA), an independent, impartial, and collective assessment of the situation in Somalia to guide and inform the development of the UNCF. The purpose of the CCA is to serve as the evidence-based analytic framework underpinning the formulation of the UN’s interventions over the coming five years.
This was the first time the entire UN system in Somalia had undertaken a comprehensive assessment of the situation in the country through the prism of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on a goal-by- goal basis. This process culminated in the production of a CCA report (link), however, it was not possible to include all the lengthy, rich, and detailed analysis resulting from the process. As such, this document serves as a companion to the CCA to capture the additional information, data, and analysis produced.
