Mogadishu, 02 July 2024: PRESS RELEASE

The Federal Government of Somalia and the United Nations convened the annual meeting of
the Joint Steering Committee (JSC) for the UN Sustainable Development Cooperation
Framework for Somalia (2021-2025) to discuss the UN’s collective results in 2023 and
workplans for 2024 in support of national development priorities.

The meeting of the Joint Steering Committee was co-chaired by the Minister for Planning,
Investment and Economic Development, His Excellency, Mohamud A. Sheikh Farah
(Beenebeene) and the UN Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary-General, Resident
and Humanitarian Coordinator for Somalia, Mr. George Conway.

H.E. Mohamud A. Sheikh Farah (Beenebeene) acknowledged the significance of the
partnership in support of Somalia’s development priorities.

“The Cooperation Framework is a testament to our strong partnership with the UN, driving
forward our national development agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
We are committed to ensuring that the progress we make together translates into tangible
improvements in the lives of the Somali people,” said, Minister, Mohamud.

Speaking during the event, Mr. George Conway explained the annual Joint Steering
Committee for the UN Cooperation Framework provides a platform to take stock and
recalibrate our engagement to ensure alignment with the vision and aspirations of the
country.

“Five-year plans such as the UN Cooperation Framework are important to hold us
accountable to commitments made. Under leadership of His Excellency the President,
Somalia is conceiving a centennial Vision 2060 that seeks to capture Somali aspirations for
their country. Providing a longer-term vision to guide short- and medium-term efforts will be
helpful both in the finalization of the next National Transformation Plan as well as our next
UN Cooperation Framework,” said, Mr. Conway.

The UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (2021-2025) is the UN’s multiyear
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.
