UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework for Somalia 2021-2025
The UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (2021-2025) is the UN's multi-year strategic plan to guide the UN’s collective contribution to the realization of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals in Somalia. This Cooperation Framework is framed around four overarching strategic priorities which mirror the pillars of the Ninth Somalia National Development Plan, namely: Inclusive Politics and Reconciliation Security and Rule of Law Economic Development Social Development These are supported by a set of integrated and mutually reinforcing outcomes designed to advance progress towards the SDGs. All priorities and outcomes of the Cooperation Framework are underpinned by human rights principles and the central objective of leaving no one behind. To institutionalize the triple nexus (humanitarian, development, and peace interlinkages) across the collective work of the UN system in Somalia, the Cooperation Framework integrates its inclusive peacebuilding, development, and resilience ambitions to help address the chronic vulnerability and structural impediments that obstruct Somalia’s progress to sustainable development. To ensure effective implementation of the Cooperation Framework and to support building Somali institutional capacities, the UN will bring to bear its capacities, expertise, and resources at country, regional, and global levels. Trusting and transparent partnerships will be essential to advancing the commitments and aspirations of the Cooperation Framework. To ensure maximum inclusiveness, the UN will engage with a broad range of governmental and non-governmental partners throughout the whole country, including the most vulnerable and marginalized, to ensure that the UN lives up to its commitment to leave no one behind.
