New EU assistance for Somalia

The European Union has announced new funding amounting to €158 million for Somalia for improving governance, strengthening security, as well as working towards better education and economic development.
The financial support will be aimed at providing basic infrastructure, equipment and training for the national administration, the justice sector and the police. It will also assist in the organization of free and fair elections. In the field of education, the funding will be directed for improving education at all levels, and start a new education program in the refugee camps of Dadaab (Kenya) to broaden the access to education for Somali refugee children and young people there.
With regard to economic development, actions will be directed toward the improvement of veterinary services and the trade and marketing of livestock. The money will be also used to provide training to farmers on the sustainable management of rangelands, and establish a better information system on climate change, drought and flood alerts.
