In late 2013, Stockholm Policy Group completed a "Country Corruption Risk Assessment for Somalia" for Sida. The assessment was undertaken after Sweden's approval of a five-year results strategy for development cooperation with Somalia to support the strategy implementation.

The purpose of the corruption risk assessment was to provide an in-depth corruption analysis to further Sida’s understanding of the corruption situation in Somalia and to visualize the relationships between different risks and actors, as well as to identify specific areas where resources can be most effectively channeled to address risk.

The task was performed in a number of elements: (1) A corruption analysis of governance, education, employment, institutional support, civil society, water and sanitation, health, peace and security and humanitarian support – taking note of the unique circumstances in each of the three states, Somalia, Puntland and Somaliland and identify any basic patterns and trends; (2) Identification of the most significant corruption risks; assigning ratings and presenting results using a visual tool (the corruption risk matrix); (3) Review of the current state of anti-corruption efforts in Somalia; identification of measures and commitments against corruption by the government and other national stakeholders, legal and institution framework; assessment of the role of donor and international community in fighting corruption and other actors; (4) A gap analysis of anti-corruption efforts versus the corruption risks involved and an assessment of whether the efforts are having the intended effects; and (5) Based on the above analysis on common and leading practices; recommendations for effective and practical management of corruption risk in humanitarian and cooperation development.
