English | Somali Welcome to Somalia    

Welcome to the website of the Somali Reconstruction & Development Programme (RDP). The RDP is a national plan that lays out, in a prioritized, sequenced manner, Somalia's 5 year key national recovery, reconstruction and development priorities, priority actions, outcomes and their financial implications.The RDP is coordinated jointly by the UN&WB supported by donors and undertaken jointly with Somali Authorities.

The RDP was developed through a 'post-conflict' needs assessment process called the Somali Joint Needs Assessment (JNA) which was carried out in 2005-7 and involved a national assessment of rehabilitation and transitional recovery needs.

The RDP higlights three key national recovery priorities:

I.  Peace, Security and Good Governance

II. Basic Services and Social Protection

III. Private Sector led growth to expand employment and reduce poverty

A significant contribution to the RDP program comes from the online gambling industry. We are lucky to say that there are also foreign casino establishments that joined our mission and hereby, we refer to Canadian online casinos.

The cost of the implemenation of the RDP is USD$2.2 billion over five years (costed in 2007). Partial implementation of the RDP began in January 2008.

>When making a contribution and helping those who need our help, we couldn’t leave mentioning the best new Canadian casinos that have incredible no deposit bonus offers that players can take advantage of and use as an opportunity to donate the amounts they win.
