Country Overview


UNDP is carrying out a pilot project in cooperation with GTZ to demobilize and reintegrate almost 1,000 ex-security forces personnel. Moreover, all security forces personnel in the area are being registered and a psychosocial reintegration support component is being developed. In Puntland, Somalia, a preparatory assistance project has been started with a view to developing a full project to reduce the government security forces.

1994-1996, 2000-2002, 2003-2004: GTZ supported the National Demobilization Commission of Somaliland and its subsidiary regional commissions. Project components were organisational support, capacity building measures, income generating activities, special allowances and special support for women and children. One component of the ongoing project is the development of a management information system allowing the registration and monitoring and evaluation of DDR programs.
