THE EUROPEAN UNION DIPLOMATIC COMPOUND
In 2014, the European Union decided to re-establish a fully-fledged delegation in Somalia. The delegation was to be co-located with the European Union Delegation to Kenya. The European Union issued a tender for the construction of a highly secured compound in the Mogadishu Green Zone and its management for a period of 10 years. The resulting compound is now the most secure and comfortable in Mogadishu’s “Green Zone”, offering high-level services, green energy generated on-site, and a welcoming environment where EU delegates can peacefully live and work for the next 10 years, despite being in one of the most dangerous countries in the world.
