Many expect to send their most senior representatives. We are also inviting representatives of Somalia’s Transitional Federal Institutions, as well as the Presidents of Somaliand, Puntland, Galmudug, and representatives of Ahlus Sunnah wal Jamaah (ASWJ).
The international community hopes to agree a series of practical measures which will be published in the form of a communiqué at the end of the conference. Discussion will be arranged under seven headings:
Security: sustainable funding for the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM), and support for Somali security and justice sectors
Political Process: agreement to what should succeed the transitional institutions in Mogadishu in August 2012 and the establishment of a Joint Financial Management Board
Local Stability: a coordinated international package of support to Somalia’s regions
Counter-terrorism: renewed commitment to tackle collectively the terrorist threat emanating from Somalia
Piracy: breaking the piracy business model
Humanitarian: renewed commitment to tackling Somalia’s humanitarian crisis
International coordination: agreement on improved international handling of Somalia issues.
