The Somaliland Development Fund (SDF) supports the Government of Somaliland (GoSL) filling a critical gap through funding projects that are fully aligned to the National Development Plan (NDP) while at the same time recognising the role of GoSL in the delivery of basic services. The anticipated impact of the Fund therefore is to contribute to a more stable and prosperous Somaliland.

The expected outcome of the SDF is improved and better-resourced core state functions for the people of Somaliland.

The SDF has four expected outputs, namely:

1. Improved government capacity to prioritise development objectives and to plan and budget development activities;

2. Increased funds and government capacity to delivery of state functions;

3. Increased government control of decision-making and the management of funds; and

4. Enhanced citizen awareness of government priorities, activities and expenditure.
