Germany contributes an additional 3 million Euros to the Somalia UN Multi-Partner Trust Fund
1 Dec 2016
Germany announced an additional contribution of EUR 3 million to the Somalia UN Multi-Partner Trust Fund, a window of the Somalia Development and Reconstruction Facility (SDRF). The EUR 3 million brings Germany’s total contribution to the Somalia UN MPTF to EUR 7.7 million in 2016. The contribution will support (i) the State Formation process, supporting the creation of a federal structure and strengthening capacity of the emerging states; and (ii) the Enabler Programme, including security, coordination and risk management services to allow the international community to engage in a safer, and more coordinated, and risk-informed manner and deliver vital support to Somalia's transition.
For the past 1 ½ years, the Somalia UN MPTF has been supporting 12 flagship UN Programmes covering the five Peacebuilding and State-building Goals, by delivering fast and flexible funding to create catalytic results.
