Donors & Structure


The Somalia Stability Fund in its third phase remains a multi-donor fund with contributors from Denmark, the European Union (EU), Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, the United Kingdom (UK), and the United States (US). SSF III is open to further funding.


Representatives from each of the seven Stability Fund’s donors sit on the Joint Donor Committee, which oversees SSF III’s strategic direction, acts as a forum on wider policy issues, and via which SSF III facilitates one of its key mandates: knowledge sharing and information exchange.

The Fund Manager

SSF III is implemented by a consortium that manages the Fund. The consortium is led by Adam Smith International, supported by Laasfort Consulting, Interpeace, and First Call Partners. A secondee by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office (FCDO) oversees the Fund Manager as the Head of SSF III.

The Fund Manager:

  • Leads on strategy development, procurement, and oversight for implementation of investments
  • Maintains relations and engages with Somali government counterparts at all levels
  • Leads on donor coordination and information/knowledge sharing
  • Ensures that SSF III works as a flexible and adaptive vehicle for engagement and support

The SSF III Team works from Mogadishu, Garowe, Kismayo, Baidoa, Dhusamareb, Jowhar, and Nairobi, bringing in depth contextual understanding and expertise on investment design, management, learning and stakeholder engagement.


SSF III operates a portfolio approach with five interlocking Workstreams:
