But faction leader Hussein Aideed who claims he is Somalia's president is boycotting the meeting.
The 26 leaders, in a declaration marking the end of an eight-week consultation process, appealed to Aideed and Mohamed Egal, leader of the self-declared Somaliland republic, to participate in the reconciliation process.
UNHCR has issued an appeal for more than $7.7 million to fund new reintegration projects for up to 140,000 refugees who are expected to return to Somalia this coming year. UNHCR's request for funds is part of an appeal for $46.5 million for a joint action programme run by UN agencies in the region.
