Strengthening Governance and Rule of Law in Somalia

29 Aug 2013

As the development agency of the United Nations, UNDP’s mandate focuses on human development and therefore advocates for change; connecting countries to the knowledge, experience and resources to help national authorities improve the quality of life of citizens.


UNDP works towards building nations that can withstand crisis and work towards long term growth and sustainable development. Despite a delicate situation of supporting transitional authorities with weak public support, UNDP is widely trusted by the international community and national authorities as the main agency with the capacity to support the emergence of stable national institutions.
