Overview of Position

  • A Transitional National Government (TNG) was established in Somalia in 2000. About a decade later, in 2012, the Federal Government of Somalia (FGS) was formed. Along with the international community, the FGS has driven a rebuilding process of functioning government institutions and frameworks. Following the 2016 electoral process, Somalia entered into a second political cycle and with a new three-tiered federal system of the FGS, Federal Member States (FMS) and district level administration have attempted to re-establish a presence of the State on the territory. Somalia is developing modernized institutions, with the aim of restoring services to a struggling and distressed population. However, this requires the government to perform key functions despite a lack of structure, resources, and limited management and leadership capacity.
  • At the London Somalia Conference in May 2017, a New Partnership for Somalia (NPS) was established to facilitate the implementation of the Somalia National Development Plan (NDP). Principles to guide the development of affordable, accountable, and acceptable Somali security institutions were endorsed and the Somalia Security Pact (SSP) adopted detailing features of the Somali National Army (SNA). The Somali Transition Plan (STP), adopted a year later, outlined the conditions and milestones for a progressive transfer of security responsibility to Somali security institutions, from a situation of insecurity and dependence on the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) to one of taking responsibility for protecting their citizens and maintaining security.
  • The transition puts additional pressure on the FGS to constitute a more modern armed force. Additionally, although in recent months the SNA has managed to lead operations through better coordination with AMISOM & strong support from international partners, the SNA still suffers from significant shortfalls. One of the biggest challenges the SNA still faces is the lack of military infrastructure & non-lethal equipment e.g. vehicles and communication equipment. Without adequate resourcing, the whole security transition is put at risk. As AMISOM gradually withdraws from the country, and the SNA gains more ground, the establishment of a well-equipped and capacitated SNA will go a long way in meeting the objectives of the STP. SNA2 is a response to address the existing resource gaps, in terms of ground transportation, communication, and infrastructure.
