As part of the design and implementation of the Somalia Capacity injection Project (CIP), the Government of Puntland and the World Bank have agreed on priority areas of intervention within the framework of the World Bank / UNDP joined up approach to capacity development.
Puntland as a major beneficiary of the CIP will be supported to improve capacity to perform key government functions, strengthen its policy capabilities and improve civil service management including support to improve institutional, organizational and individual level capacity to improve public sector performance. Organizational performance is directly dependent on the quality of staff performing well-defined functions on the basis of clearly defined mandates and availability of appropriate tools and enabling work conditions. The CIP aims to support the Government of Puntland to conduct a rapid assessment of mandates, functions and staffing requirements of ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) including taking them through a visioning process to define their vision, mission and value system. These activities are consistent with outcomes of the public sector reform dialogue initiated by the Puntland Government in2012 in the areas of(i) public finance and procurement;(ii) human resources management and capacity development; (iii) improving institutional performance; and (iv) services delivery.
