EU to inject €158 million into Somali development efforts

In the next few years, the European Union will focus its aid to Somalia on strengthening the country’s education, judicial and security sectors. This was outlined on 3 November by  Michele Cervone d’Urso, the EU’s new special envoy to Somalia, as he announced a new €158 million programme for the country.
The aid package will be spent on initiatives to strengthen the country’s judiciary and other relevant state institutions, the police force and the education sector. Some of the funds will also be used to encourage Somali professionals working abroad to come home. This funding comes on top of the €212 million the EU has allocated for Somalia for the period of 2008-2013, implemented by U.N. agencies and nongovernmental organisations.
