The Security Pact Conference and the Somalia Partnership Forum are taking place in Mogadishu Somalia on the 4th and 5th December 2017 respectively.
The main focus of the Somalia Partnership Forum will be to:__
▪ Take stock of overall progress on constitutional and electoral issues:
▪ Provide high-level feedback on outcomes of the Drought Impact Needs Assessment (DINA) process; and set the stage for the Resilience & Recovery Framework – RRF (which will be launched, together with HRP in January 2018)
▪ Review key areas for improving economic recovery in the country.
▪ Endorse a Mutual Accountability Framework for the New Partnership for Somalia.
The Somalia NGO Consortium has in that regard prepared messaging for the Somalia Partnership Forum. 27 NGOs have since lauded the messages therein and have called on commitments to meet immediate and longer-term needs of the Somali people. Attached from from this link is the joint NGO statement prepared for the upcoming conference. Please feel free to peruse through the document as well as disseminate widely
We further appreciate the continuous support we have with our media community.
