Key decisions on MPF funding priorities and project approvals are made by Somalia development and reconstruction facility (SDRF).

The SDRF is the centerpiece of the partnership between the government and the intentional community .It serves as a platform for coordinating the many diverse activities supporting National Development plan implementation.

The MPF is committed to using and strengthening Somalia’s systems to the full extent possible.

Alignment With National Priorities

The MPF fosters socio-economic recovery and at the same time strengthens core government functions. Its portfolio aligns with the three National Development (NDP) pillars which are focused on: effective institutions; economic growth; infrastructure. There are also cross-cutting initiatives relevant to other pillars.

The MPF was activated in August 2014 with the receipt of its contribution from the World Bank State and Peace-Building Fund (SPF). Since then, nine additional donors have committed funds to the MPF: the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA), the European Union, Finnish Ministry for Foreign Affairs, German Development Cooperation, Italy’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the Royal Norwegian Embassy, the Swedish International Development Cooperation (SIDA), the Swiss Agency for Development Co-operation (SDC), the United States Agency for International Development and the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DfID).
