United Nations Support Office in Somali (UNSOS)
United Nations System


The United Nations Support Office in Somalia (UNSOS) was established on 9 November 2015, through a UN Security Council Resolution 2245. UNSOS is a successor operation to the United Nations Support Office for AMISOM (UNSOA), which was established in 2009 (S/RES/1863 (2009) to provide logistical field support to the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM). 

Our core mission is to provide critical support to AMISOM, UNSOM and the Somali Federal Security Institutions to make them more effective in defeating enemies of peace and in creating the much needed space for political reconciliation, state formation and extension of government authority in Somalia. 

UNSOS continues to provide logistical support to AMISOM, UNSOM and the Somali National Army.

  • To AMISOM, the mission would support the provision of rations, fuel, water, accommodation and infrastructure, maintenance services — including all partner-donated and partner owned-equipment jointly recognized as required by the African Union, United Nations and troop contributors.
  • To UNSOM, the mission would support the standard range of services, including to strengthen UNSOM’s presence in all capitals of Interim Regional Administrations.
  • To Somali federal security institutions, the mission would provide, on an exceptional basis, a “targeted support package” for 10,900 troops in the Somali National Army on joint operations with AMISOM.
