The World Bank, through (SERP) is supporting Somalia to improve institutions and service delivery to strengthen the social contract. This is part of a broader effort to build state legitimacy and reduce institutional fragmentation. For Somali citizens to be willing to contribute to public revenues, they must trust in the... state’s capability to discharge its basic functions and deliver public services. Similar trust is required to boost external funding for essential services and humanitarian support, such as for drought and famine, and to channel these via government institutions and systems. This requires, on the one hand, bolstering the institutional capacity of the state, and on the other hand, addressing fragmentation and strengthening the transparency and accountability in managing public resources.

SERP will assist Somali governments by focusing on synergies and interconnections between improving domestic revenue mobilization (DRM), public financial management (PFM), and public sector management (PSM).[1] Integration of revenue, expenditure, and service delivery will in time improve formal tax revenues, strengthen legitimacy of the state by strengthening budget management, accountability for results, transparency, and the State’s capacity to deliver services to its citizens.
