The Somalia Multi-Partner Trust Fund, founded on Busan New Deal principles, supports joint programmes that address priorities in line with Somalia’s Peacebuilding and Statebuilding Goals.

A multi-donor, country-based pooled mechanism, the Somalia Multi-Partner Trust Fund was launched in 2015 (under the guise of the Somalia Development and Reconstruction Facility [SDRF] to channel resources to projects that address the needs of Somalis under the following five pillars: inclusive politics, security, justice, economic foundations, and services and revenues.
More than $303 million US dollars has been allocated by the Fund for initiatives since that time and collaborative efforts under the five pillars are bound by common governance arrangements for the United Nations, World Bank, African Development Bank, Special Financing Facility, and other organizations.
Funds are prioritized according to municipality/locale, helping strengthen coordination and systems in Somalia.
Strategic and results framework
In addition to channeling funds for programmatic activities, this UN pooled fund offers coherence and alignment functions for existing United Nations programmes. Ongoing programmes maintain their account, governance structures, and legal relationships, but eventually become subject to common SDRF reporting standards and are progressively placed under Facility oversight.
Fund action is structured under five Peacebuilding and Statebuilding Goal pillars:
The Steering Committee is responsible for providing oversight and accountability for the Fund, as well as reviewing and approving proposals submitted for funding. Committee members are also expected to develop and approve implementation criteria, track Fund progress, and commission reviews and “lesson learned” reports on Fund performance.
Federal Government of Somalia and Development Partner Groups
The group provides a technical forum for sector policy formulation, planning and programmatic co-ordination. This platform ensures joint oversight of the strategic direction, implementation, and results of the Somalia Multi-Partner Trust Fund and other financing instruments.
The Secretariat supports the functioning of the Steering Committee and the High Level Partnership Forum, and advances day-to-day work on financing, aid effectiveness, co-ordination, and monitoring and reporting.
