Under the auspices of The Somali Compact 2014 - 2016 that was agreed in September 2013 and the United Nations Somalia Integrated Strategic Framework 2014 - 2016 signed with the Federal Government on 29 October 2014, the Somalia Joint Rule of Law Programme ('the Programme') has been developed. The Programme is designed to support the Federal Government of Somalia (FGS) in achieving the Somali Compact Peace-building and State-building Goals (PSGs) 2 Security (Policing component) and 3 Justice, which identifies the strategic objectives of establishing unified, capable, accountable and rights-based Somali federal security institutions providing basic safety and security for all; and establishing independent and accountable justice institutions capable of addressing the justice needs of the people of Somalia by delivering justice for all.
The Programme is founded on the Somalia Rule of Law Programme Priorities which were developed by the PSG 2 and 3 Working Groups and endorsed by the Somali Development and Reconstruction Facility (SDRF) Steering Committee on 31 August 2014 as a thematic priority for part of the initial funding pipeline for the UN Multi-Partner Trust Fund (UN MPTF). The programme adopts the thematic approach of rule of law for support to police, justice and corrections and builds on previous support provided to rule of law, and in particular the progress already under the Somali Compact as reported by PSG 2 and 3 Working Groups and discussed in Copenhagen in November 2014.
The Programme represents a joint approach by the United Nations Mission in Somalia (UNSOM) and the UN Country Team to strengthen collaboration, focus and coherence to support the implementation of the Somalia Rule of Law Programme Priorities. The Programme builds on the positive gains, experience, expertise and added value of relevant UN partners under the Global Focal Point Arrangement to advance rule of law and constitutes a key landmark to maximize impact of UN interventions, minimize overlapping activities and maximize UN MPTF resources and know-how of the UN to "deliver as one" to enhance justice and security for all Somalis. The Programme framework ensures that collective UN action to enhance rule of law retains capacity building, gender equality and human rights principles as cross-cutting issues of this approach as outlined in the Somali Compact
The Programme will rely on coordination with and between different national counterparts, while supporting the Compact principle that development efforts are "Somali-owned, Somali-led". It will also maintain interactive partnerships with UN MPTF donors and other partner to make better use of the limited available resources.
