Programme Overview

The JPLG is one of the longest running joint UN interventions in Somalia, now in its 3rd five year phase.  The programme has seen remarkable progress. Somaliland and Puntland have put in place decentralization policies and strategies which define the process of decentralization as well as the roles and responsibilities of the central and local governments. This demonstrates their commitment in devolving functions for improved governance and service delivery. In the newly established federal member states, local government laws have been passed and legitimate district councils established in some districts i.e Hudur and Berdale, thus setting the scene for improving governance and increasing stability.

Local governments in Somaliland and Puntland are today generating more funding and receiving more financial, technical and political support from their respective governments. With strong policy, capacity and financial support and structured modes of funding, local governments have been able to dramatically improve the quality of education and health care mainly through the service delivery models (SDMs) initiated through JPLG.

In areas where the programme has been engaged there are clear indicators of improved competencies of the local governments to provide services and generate revenue.
