With the establishment of a de facto government in Somalia and the apparent threat to the security of neighbouring countries due to the influx of terrorist elements in Somalia, United Nations International Organisation for Migration (IOM) developed the Capacity-Building in Migration Management Project. The Project aims to strengthen the capabilities of the regional Government of Somaliland, in particular the National Intelligence and Immigration Agency, to work towards a realistic and effective migration management system, and will contribute to efforts aimed at reducing irregular migration, particularly transit migration by third country nationals.
Closure of UNPOS
The United Nations Political Office for Somalia (UNPOS) completed its Security Council mandate on 3 June 2013. The United Nations continues to provide support to the Somalia Federal Government's peace and reconciliation efforts through the United Nations Assistance Mission in Somalia (UNSOM), established by Security Council resolution 2101 (2013).
