Somalia has secured 8.9 million U.S. dollars from Finland to finance various development projects.
The funds follow an original contribution of 4.4 million dollars, bringing the total contribution to 13.4 million dollars.
World Bank Country Manager for Somalia Hugh Riddell said, “With this contribution we will be able to further support the government capacities to improve service delivery and increase resilience in Somalia.”
Finland is a partner to the World Bank through its engagement with the MPF, one of the pooled funds established under the Somalia development and reconstruction facility.
MPF was activated in August 2014 and has received contributions of more than 447 million dollars from eleven donors, including Finland. Enditem
