The Somalia Strengthening Institutions for Public Works Project (SSIPWP) is the centerpiece initiative for building the capacity of the Federal Ministry of Public Works, Reconstruction and Housing (MPWRH), the member State-level Ministries and Banadir Regional Administration (BRA). By developing more effective, efficient, accountable and inclusive institutions, these Ministries will be better positioned to deliver much needed infrastructure and services to all Somalis.
The SSIPWP was jointly developed by MPWRH and the African Development Bank (AfDB). The rational, strategic objectives, project description, feasibility assessment and implementation framework (including monitoring and evaluation) were formulated and agreed in 2016 and captured in the Project Appraisal Report.
The SSIPWP was initiated after the FGS, AfDB and the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) signed a tripartite agreement for the project in January 2017. While AfDB provide most of the financing for the project, UNOPS has been chosen as the implementing agency and MPWRH as the executing agency.
The implementation of SSIPWP comprises a number of subcomponents, assessing and revising legislation, developing effective coordination mechanisms with public works institutions and stakeholders, undertaking building assessments of government buildings, developing the capacity of the MPWRH and State level Public Works Ministries (including BRA) and facilitating youth employment and entrepreneurship in public works activities.
