The Multi-Partner Fund (MPF) for Somalia has been the primary source of financing for the World Bank Group’s (WBG) early reengagement in Somalia. The MPF was established in 2013, and since then has supported the process for normalizing Somalia’s relations with international financial institutions (IFIs), while building and strengthening core government systems at both federal and state level. The MPF portfolio finances 16 active projects. Of these, nine are recipient-executed investment projects and seven are analytical/advisory projects. The MPF provides financing worth US$324.5 million. The portfolio is co-financed with US$950.5 million in IDA resources. With IDA complementing MPF financing, the portfolio is now demonstrating the advantages of blending multiple sources of financing to leverage a coordinated and pooled financing approach using country systems.
