has been ongoing since early 2016 and has completed preparation of feasibility studies and preliminary
designs for civil works for urban and community roads in Mogadishu, urban roads in Garowe and solid

funding available. Presently, MPF is funding construction of community roads in Mogadishu and urban
roads in Garowe.

provide the technical basis – through the outputs of feasibility studies, preliminary and detailed
engineering designs, safeguard instruments as well as bidding documents for the urban roads – for a
follow-on investment project. This follow-on project, the Somalia Urban Resilience Project (SURP) II, will
utilize the SUIPP AF output – final Detailed Designs, bidding documents and safeguard instruments for the
selected urban roads. Funding has been secured in the MPF for the follow-on SURP for capacity building
and financing the priority urban roads for both Cities. The contracts that will be awarded, and the roads
