Somalia - Country Brief 2017-2020


The Federal Government of Somalia (FGS) has over the 2012-2016 period made significant progress towards realising its political, security, and economic development agenda. These achievements include, conducting peaceful elections in February 2017, which resulted in the election of a new President and Federal Parliament, creation of several autonomous Federal Member States (FMSs), and a historic agreement reached by Somali political leaders on a new National Security Architecture. The National Development Plan 2017-19 (NDP) was finalised in early 2017, and progress has been made in re-engaging with International Financial Institutions following the implementation of a number of economic policy reforms and initial capacity building programmes in key ministries and institutions. As a result of these accomplishments, the FGS is now in a much stronger position to implement Somalia’s peace building and sustainable economic development agenda.
