Final Report: Support to Four State Assemblies in Somalia.

Project Report | September 30, 2020

This report highlights successes, reflections, and lessons learned from project implementation of the Support to Four State Assemblies (Gole-Kaab) project.

The Somalia Stability Fund launched the Support to Four State Assemblies in Somalia (Gole-Kaab) project in 2018 to support the state assemblies of Jubbaland, South West State, Hirshabelle, Galmudug, and Puntland. The project improved legislative processes, increased oversight on the executive branch, strengthened relations between members of parliament (MPs) and constituents, established effective secretariats, increased MPs’ understanding of best practices for gender equality and social inclusion, and assisted with professional development. In May 2020, the Gole-Kaab project conducted an assessment to capture feedback from participating Federal Member State partners and project sponsored interns. The results of this assessment along with reflections from project implementation are presented in this report.
