Since 2008, PUNSAA has engaged in generating policy positions with its member organisations and feeding these into policy dialogue processes. PUNSAA aims to ensure that policies affecting peace and development in Puntland are relevant and responsive to people’s needs.

PUNSAA policies are formed through a consultation process with members on key issues. The outcomes of these consultations form the basis of the policy recommendations that PUNSAA makes to the international community and national authorities.

This consultative approach gives PUNSAA representatives a strong mandate at policy dialogues and helps ensure that the secretariat and board are responsive to the membership.
