Short description of the Somalia Joint Rule of Law Programme

The Somalia Joint Rule of Law Programme is designed to support the Federal Government of Somalia (FGS) in achieving the Somali Compact Peace-building and State-building Goals (PSGs) 2 Security (Policing component) and 3 Justice. The Programme is founded on the Somalia Rule of Law Programme Priorities which were developed by the PSG 2 and 3 Working Groups and endorsed by the Somali Development and Reconstruction Facility (SDRF) Steering Committee on 31 August 2014 as a thematic priority for part of the initial funding pipeline for the UN Multi Partner Trust Fund (UN MPTF). The Programme adopts the thematic approach of rule of law support to police, justice and corrections and builds on previous support provided to rule of law, including the ongoing support to the payment of police stipends. In accordance with the United Nations Somalia Integrated Strategic Framework 2014 – 2016 signed on 29 October 2014 the programme also represents a joint approach by the United Nations Mission in Somalia (UNSOM) and the UN Country Team to strengthen collaboration, focus and coherence to support the implementation of the Somalia Rule of Law Programme Priorities. There Programme involves nine UN partners, four participating UN Agencies in the Programme directly receiving funds (UNDP, UNICEF, UNODC, UNOPS); UNSOM involved in joint implementation and management, and joint implementation for specific activities (UNWOMEN, IOM, UNFPA and UNHCR). In accordance with the Compact’s Special Arrangement for Somaliland separate work-plans for Police and Justice & Corrections and the associated results framework are included.
