Sectoral Analysis in the Area of Security and Justice within the Framework of the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa

The Commission's Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development (DG DEVCO) entrusted ISSAT to conduct a sectoral analysis in three Sahel countries (Niger, Chad and Burkina Faso). ISSAT is going to carry out assessments, elaborate practical tools and develop recommendations related to Security and Justice Sector Reform. Those activities aim at providing guidance to and fostering the coherence of existing and future projects supported by the European Emergency Trust Fund for Africa (Lake Chad/Sahel Window). 

The project’s methodology aims at designing a shared reference base, which seeks to identify fundamental elements for ensuring the optimal functioning of a security system. On this basis, an evaluation grid will be developed and used in field missions in order to assess institutional needs in the security sector. The population’s needs are equally taken into account through perception surveys. An assessment of institutional cooperation in the field of security for each country, on a regional scale and with international partners, will also be conducted. The outcome of those various steps will allow for the formulation of operational guidance to the European Trust Fund, enhancing consistency and improving the effectiveness of its projects in the Sahel.
