Background:

In 2012, after a long and troubled transition, a new political dispensation was found in Somalia, with the adoption of the Provisional Constitution, the selection of a new parliament, the election of president and formation of a new government. The challenges faced by the Federal and State Governments are enormous. The challenges can be summarized as follows:

  • The long civil war and looting have destroyed physical infrastructure, equipment and the institutional memory of most government agencies and ministries.
  • There is a lack of clarity on the mandate and functions across Federal and State Government institutions and between the federal and subnational levels of government.
  • Core work-processes in government have suffered in quality and consistency, and service delivery is in many areas virtually absent.
  • Staff capacity is low across the whole spectrum of government institutions with limited mechanisms to identify and redress these capacity gaps.

The Federal and State Governments face significant capacity challenges - at the individual, organizational and institutional level - in implementing their mandate and require institutional support to roll out the New Deal process and implement the different reforms.

On State Level, the Puntland Government is fairly well established. However, the process to establish new State Level governments in ‘south-central Somalia’ has started during 2014. This highly sensitive process is about merging different regions into a state level government administration. It requires an inclusive (political) debate and technical guidance.

The Support to Emerging Federal States (StEFS) Project is one of the Projects developed in response to the New Deal. Aligned to the priorities and principles spelled out in the Somali Compact, the StEFS Project aims to support the Federal Government of Somalia (FGS) and Emerging Federal States in achieving the Peace-building and State-building Goal (PSG) 1, Inclusive Politics Strategic Objective, to “achieve a stable and peaceful federal Somalia through inclusive political processes.”

StEFS builds on the positive gains, experience, expertise and added value of UNSOM and UNDP in advancing these processes while further delivering key capacity support needed for these new governance structures to function effectively within a nascent federal system.

The Project prescribes a coherent approach to address the needs of Emerging Federal States in addition to those federal level institutions that enable and facilitate the formation and development of these new state structures and federalism process.

The Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management (MHA&DM) is the principal institution at the federal level with the mandate to manage and coordinate all humanitarian affairs as well as all aspects of disaster mitigation, preparedness and response working closely with the regional states and local governments. The Ministry is also the principal institution responsible for attaining durable solutions for IDPs and returnees.
In addition, the Ministry will lead both the environment portfolio and social protection for the most vulnerable groups in society. The Ministry plans are based on the National Development Plan and as such has the following key goals in the four key areas of disaster management, IDPs/refugees, social protection and the environment.

Vision

To transform Somalia into a fair, safer and resilient society where the impact of hazards would not hamper development and a better quality of life is achieved through effective emergency response, disaster risk reduction and resilient recovery.

Mission

To protect Somali lives, property, economy and environment through developing capacities of government and communities to better predict, mitigate, prepare for and manage disasters and crises.

Due to the multi-sectoral nature of the humanitarian affairs, disaster risk reduction, emergency response and recovery, the key functions of the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management (MoHA&DM) would involve; policy and planning, capacity development, disaster information management, intersectoral coordination to integrate disaster risk reduction into development plans/programs, and organization of emergency response, recovery and reintegration.
