The Somaliland Development Fund – Phase 2 (SDF2) covers the period 2018 – 2023. SDF2 is conceived as an inclusive economic development programme. It supports the GoSL in delivering infrastructure that is relevant for inclusive economic development. It focuses on sustainable investments that spur job creation and fast growth, while at the same time laying the foundation for long-term resilience and development, leading to a more stable and peaceful Somaliland. SDF2’s support is fully aligned with government priorities as defined in the National Development Plan 2 (NDP2) 2017-2021 and reflect the priorities set out in Somaliland Vision 2030.
The Ministry of Livestock and Fisheries Development (MoLFD) has developed a Project Concept Note for a project on Strengthening Animal Production and Health Services. The project will specifically establish one livestock holding ground by fencing an area of 10x10 in Ilaan, Sanaag for fodder production and expanding the fodder production in the previously established Aroori livestock holding ground. In addition, the project will also train ministry staff on animal production and research and data management. Furthermore, the project will also improve the capacity of the livestock disease surveillance and control by strengthening the disease reporting focal points in all the regions of Somaliland.
The SDF Secretariat is therefore seeking the services of a Senior Animal Production Expert to support the MoLFD in the conducting necessary preliminary consultations, assessments and development of a full project proposal as per the SDF approved proposal format. The Senior Expert will be supported by a National Civil Engineer.
