Priorities and funded actions


  • To enhance the role of Civil Society in providing external scrutiny of Somali public finances and demanding greater transparency and accountability from governmental authorities
  • To increase opportunities for Somali citizens’ scrutiny of fiscal and financial affairs of public interest


  • Priority 1: monitoring and critical analysis of FGS and/or FMS annual budgets; of FGS and/or FMS quarterly budget execution reports; of the annual Financial Governance Reports (issued by the Financial Governance Committee); and of audit reports issued by the OAGS and state-level auditors
  • Priority 2: analysis and/or dissemination to the Somali citizenry of relevant legislation issued in the areas of fiscal management and financial governance, such as laws and regulations in the spheres of expenditure management, inland and external tax policy and administration, public procurement, anti-corruption etc
  • Priority 3: production and dissemination of easily accessible communication products regarding the annual budget preparation and implementation, including its linkages to the operationalisation of the National Development Plan (NDP) and other public policy documents (e.g. relevant sectoral plans, especially in social service delivery sectors). This is in order to facilitate a better understanding and scrutiny of key budgetary and policy documents by the Somali public, including a better appreciation of the role of EU budget support to the FGS (and indirectly to the FMSs) in supporting state resilience and state building in Somalia
  • Priority 4: engagement in outreach and policy dialogue activities on fiscal and financial governance issues, including evidence-based advocacy for transparent and accountable management of public resources (e.g. concerning developments in the oil & gas exploration or fisheries sectors). For instance, this can take the form of ensuring active participation in consultative fora during the annual budget cycle, as well as engaging with horizontal oversight institutions such as the OAGS and/or relevant parliamentary standing committees or with sector working groups and government commissions
  • Priority 5: to support the aforementioned activities, partnerships with local media outlets should be sought e.g. to engage with radio and television programmes), and an effective use of social media should be pursued to also potentially engage in social accountability activities in one or more social service delivery sectors
  • Priority 6: identify other possible entry points, suitable to the Somali context, for advancing demand-side accountability on fiscal and financial affairs of public interest (taking due consideration of similar initiatives that are ongoing in Somalia)
  • Priority 7: build capacity of grassroots organisations to engage in any of the above mentioned activities at the local level
