1 Term of Reference 1. General Information: Title: SOMALILAND Type of Contract: DEVELOPMENT OF A YOUTH POLICY FOR MIDA(2 individual expert) Duration of contract: Two and Half Months Date of Issue: 30th September 2016 Closing Date: 14 th October 2016 Organizational Unit: IOM Somalia in collaboration with UNFPA Somalia. 1. Background Somaliland is one of the youngest countries in the world, whereby seven out of ten are younger than 35 years old 1. Avenues for youth to obtain an education and gainful employment opportunities are limited and opportunities to engage politically, economically, or socially remain low. The space and opportunities are further limited for girls and young women. Different UN agencies working in Somaliland have projects which focus completely or partially on adolescents and youth, addressing the priorities outlined in Peace building and State-building documents. Although the UN recognizes the role adolescents and young Somalis could play in the peace- and national-building in Somaliland, so far, adolescents and youth programming and interventions have lacked a comprehensive and integrated long-term approach. There has been inconsistent engagement of Somaliland 1 Approximately 81,5% of the Somali population is under 35 years old according to the population Estimation Survey 2014, UNFPA Somalia 1

2 youth in the planning, implementation and monitoring of policies and programmes as well as limited success in effectively mainstreaming adolescents and youth issues in the political and development processes. Failing to respond to the needs of adolescents and youth in Somaliland put at risk the chances of lasting peace and stability. In order to appropriately respond to the needs and aspirations of young people, the UN has developed a Joint Youth Strategy for Somaliland. Placing youth empowerment at the centre of the UN work in Somaliland, the UN Youth Strategy for Somaliland articulates into a strategic and integrated framework all the different efforts, programmes and initiatives currently being implemented by the UN in the country. Furthermore, the Youth Strategy recognizes the role of adolescents and youth as partners of our development efforts, and challenges the misunderstanding that Somaliland youth are either part of the problem or simply passive beneficiaries of our work. Placing social, political and economic empowerment at the core of the UN Youth Strategy is a vital prerequisite for transformation in Somalia. The multidimensional concept of empowerment social, economic and political provides ample scope for harmonizing approaches to youth policies and programming. This will help harness the full potential of youth by ensuring youth become strategic social and economic actors, as well as peace builders. The Youth Policy Somaliland s national youth policy needs to be updated and revised so as to include more inclusivity for the youth. The development of a National Youth Policy is crucial to ensure that the Somaliland youth participates and contributes fully in the development of their country. The revision of the national youth policy will among others focus on strengthening the existing evidence based and successful interventions, introducing innovative ones, eliminating those that have not worked, enhancing the quality of the services rendered, extending coverage of information and services drawing from lesson learnt and good practices from regional and global perspectives. Goal of the Youth Policy The goal of the youth policy is to enhance the capacities of young people through addressing their needs, promoting positive outcomes, and providing integrated and coordinated package of information and services, opportunities, choices, relationship and support necessary for holistic development of all young people particularly those outside the social, political and economic mainstream.
