The UNDP Somalia Country Office is led by its Resident Representative and assists the Somali government and people to attain the Sustainable Development Goals. We work with a range of partners, including government, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), civil society, UN agencies and others to design projects that contribute to real, measurable improvements in the lives of the Somali people.

UNDP operates within the UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework for Somalia 2021-2025, which is the UN's multi-year strategic plan to guide the UN’s collective contribution to the realization of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals in Somalia, and in line with national priorities identified by the Somali authorities themselves in their own National Development Plan 9 (NDP-9) 2020- 2024.

UNDP formally established its presence in Somalia in 1977 with the signature of the Standard Basic Framework Agreement (SBBA ).
