Somali Public Agenda SPA is a non-profit public policy and administration research organization based in Mogadishu. Its aim is to advance understanding and improvement of public administration and public services in Somalia through evidence-based research and analysis.
At Somali Public Agenda, we believe that all Somalis deserve better public services including access to affordable education, healthcare, housing, security, and justice delivered via transparent and accountable authorities.
“Somali Public Agenda, in collaboration with Radio Ergo, issued a quite rare report on the distribution of aid following the floods in Hiiraan. The report highlights challenges regarding coordination, accountability, transparency and inclusion concerning the distribution of aid in the flood affected areas. While the respondents and debaters were quite limited in number, the findings have a kind of ‘truth value’ that merits attention.”
“I have read your critical analysis of the electoral bill. I am a member of a 15-member parliamentary select committee tasked to review the bill. Your analysis very objectively addressed some of the ambiguities of the bill, and I agree with the conclusions drawn from the analysis. When we start deliberations on the bill, we will contact you to get your insights and input to improve the bill with the intention of holding fair and free election that contributes to democracy and good governance.”
“Development doesn’t come by accident. It’s based on research, deeper understanding of the issues/challenges and well thought-through solutions that is acceptable and workable to all stakeholders. Your research institution comes in handy in terms of helping members of the public, civil societies and the government to find solutions to key governance challenges in Somalia.”
“The article [on local governance] is very interesting and makes a strong case for investment in Somalia local governments. I read the recommendations with particular interest, especially the potential of local governments to attract young graduates and thereby contribute to addressing the problem of youth unemployment.”
