Executive Summary

The joint programme will support the Federal and Regional governments of Somalia with support from development partners to build the basis for a social protection system. The programme will strengthen the federal and regional government to build the foundational components of a social protection system, to address the root causes of poverty and vulnerability and with a view to be shock responsive.

In Somalia, social protection is defined as:

Government-led policies and programs which address predictable needs throughout the life cycle in order to protect all groups, and particularly the poor and vulnerable, against shocks, help them to manage risks, and provide them with opportunities to overcome poverty, vulnerability, and exclusion. By addressing the root causes of poverty, risk, and vulnerability, social protection is expected to contribute to poverty reduction, social cohesion and inclusion, and economic growth as part of a cost-effective, sustainable, and comprehensive national system.

Specifically, this joint program seeks to achieve the following program outcomes:

(i) Strengthen the capacity of federal and regional institutions to implement the social protection policy and programming

(ii) Provide support to Institutionalization of social protection

Outputs under this joint program include:

Output 1.1.         Strengthen the capacity of the Federal Government of Somalia, through the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (MOLSA) and Regional Governments, to better understand vulnerability and to develop systems to manage data

Output 1.2.         Strengthen the capacity of the Banadir Regional Administration (BRA) to administer safety nets

Output 2.1.         Implement Communication and Advocacy strategy of the National Social Protection Policy

Output 2.2.         Strengthen Government capacity to design and implement social protection schemes

Output 2.3          Improve working conditions for FMS staff in charge of social protection


The joint program (JP) will be implemented from the date of formal SDRF approval through end March 2022. The implementation of the JP will closely interlink with, and build upon, the work undertaken within the Social Development Pillar Working Group (PWG). The JP will also directly contribute to the achievement of results within the fourth pillar of the National Development Plan (NDP-9 2020-2024): Improved Social Development.
