Multi-Partner Trust Fund Quarterly Update March 2016

The second edition of the UN MPTF Newsletter focuses on main achievenments on various levels:

  • On the Trust Fund level: Latest updates of the fund and its capitalisation and on the UN MPTF Secretariat for Somalia
  • On the Joint Programme level: Milestones and developments of all nine joint programmes in the past three months
This quarter, the newsletter features a foreword by Mr. Doudou Mbye, Senior Technical Advisor OIC of UN-Habitat. UN-Habitat is involved in both the Joint Programme on Local Governance and Decentralised Services (JPLG) and in the Youth Employment Somalia Programme (YES). Especially the programme on youth employment has been part of a greater focus of the UN Somalia to tackle youth-related issues and to engage youth as partners in peace building, not just as beneficiaries.
 
 

The joint programmes are being implemented with the assistance of Denmark, the European Union, Italy, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK, the US and the Peacebuilding Support Office. The contents of this publication are the sole responsibility of the UN Resident Coordinator’s Office for Somalia and can in no way be taken to reflect the views of Denmark, the European Union, Italy, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, the UK, the US and the Peacebuilding Support Office.
