Project Description:

This project will support the Somali signatories of the Roadmap to Ending the Transition in Somalia in their implementation of critical transition tasks to ensure the legitimate end of the current transition in August 2012 with particular focus on the constitution-making process and the improvement of security arrangements in the newly recovered areas.

PBF Priority Area:

This project proposal is aligned to the PBF’s priority areas one and two, namely “to support the implementation of peace agreements and political dialogue” and “to promote coexistence and peaceful resolution of conflicts”.

PBF Outcome:

The Somali peace process is at a critical juncture. The two key outputs in this project proposal are crucial to consolidate recent progress made in security and broaden the base of political participation in south-central Somalia, in line with the transition Roadmap and existing peace agreements. The first output is to improve human security in the newly recovered areas from the insurgents, notably by supporting the TFG in reaching out to local communities, facilitating reconciliation and establishing legitimate local security governance. The second output is logistic support to enable inclusive representation in the first national Constituent Assembly, which will adopt the Consultative Draft Constitution and select the new federal Parliament. This logistical support is essential to ensure smooth, safe and secure participation of all Somali actors selected to participate in the Assembly, especially women and those from areas newly recovered areas, who have been under-represented in the political process in the past. All of these key activities are insufficiently funded at the moment and thus at risk of not being sufficiently implemented.

Key Project Activities:

On the political side, the project contributes to ensuring transport required to facilitate the safe and secure participation of all selected Assembly members, who will include nominees from across south-central Somalia, including from areas recently recovered from the insurgents as well as those still under their control, with a minimum of 30% women.

On the security side, the project provides immediate assistance to the TFG to plan for the establishment of basic security and law and order in newly recovered areas, while activities are stepped up for recovery projects and programs in those areas. This includes stakeholder mapping exercises and quick security sector assessments with local communities by the TFG in, at least, 4 locations in south central Somalia.
