A copy of the needs assessment report on the Somalia extractives sector has been placed in the Library. In response to the report, and following discussions with the Federal Government of Somalia, we are funding the World Bank to support a Somali-led process to reach agreements on revenue sharing. The project will also provide technical assistance to review the legal and regulatory framework.
