In Somalia, following two decades of civil war and anarchy, the creation of viable security and stability conditions is a prerequisite for an environment conducive to the establishment of institutions and democratic governance, reconciliation and longer-term development. The background documents prepared for this JSP include a comprehensive description of the democratic governance approach, an analysis of the situation in which the approach is embedded, and the pillar implications for sector programming.
Our strategy will focus on support to enhance security, governance (institutional capacity – state institutions, including executive, legislative and judiciary, planning, regulatory frameworks, etc.),
Support for the establishment/development of a civilian police force and demobilisation, disarmament and reintegration (DDR) programmes.
