Conflict, insecurity and fragmented and weak government all present major challenges in delivering humanitarian and development aid effectively. It is difficult for donors to operate on the ground and there is much greater reliance on UN leadership and the implementation of programmes through its agencies than in other environments. 70% of all international assistance (and 64% of current aid from DFID) is delivered through the UN. The effectiveness of aid depends on : the evidence the UN provides about where aid is most needed, UN led co-ordination arrangements and close working between UN agencies. It also depends upon the UN closely monitoring results. Donors depend upon the UN for common services, including help to increase their access on the ground.

The programme will make the targeting and delivery of aid to Somalia more effective, making it possible for humanitarian and development assistance to better meet the needs of poor Somalis. It will achieve this by working principally through the UN to support :

• Stronger use of evidence, management of risk, planning and co-ordination in implementing development assistance and in the humanitarian response ;

• Greater access for aid workers in Somalia through the provision of improved safety and security.

Project budget : £11,775,993
