Somalia Fact Sheet

Program Overview

TThe U.S. Government (USG) engages with Somalis across the nation, both at the federal level and with credible regional and local administrations that strive to provide services to the people.




USAID’s goal in Somalia is to increase stability through targeted interventions that foster good governance, improve economic recovery, and reduce the appeal of extremism. Following the transition to a new government in September 2012, improvements in security in Mogadishu and other areas, and USG recognition of the Government of Somalia in early 2013, the United States plans to continue to expand its stabilization assistance in accordance with New Deal principles of building peaceful states.
