ISSAT, jointly with Germany, will develop comprehensive mappings of donor support to SSR in Nigeria and Mali. In Mali, the mapping will focus on the criminal justice chain, including accountability. In Nigeria, the mapping will look at both the security forces and the criminal justice chain, also including accountability. With the aim of further building German SSR capacity, a joint Germany-ISSAT team will develop the methodology and undertake the mappings.
The methodology will be finalised during a one/two-day workshop at ISSAT in Geneva. This will be followed by a desk review and telephone interviews, exploiting ISSAT’s network across bilateral donors and multilateral actors, and building on already existing material. The findings will then be consolidated with a 10-day field mission to each country that will involve donors, implementing partners of SSR projects and international NGOs, as well as national institutions of the security and justice sector, including relevant ministries. The subsequent reports will then be shared by the joint Germany-ISSAT team across the international community active in the countries through an in-situ workshop that could also include discussions on how to further consolidate international support.

This mapping study provides an overview of the various ongoing or planned development partner efforts to support security sector reform in Nigeria since 2014. The mapping was jointly undertaken by the German Federal Foreign Office and ISSAT. The report tracks development partner support to all justice and security sector institutions in Nigeria. The elements of support were organized according to four categories: management reform, accountability reforms, capacity building/training and equipment/infrastructure support. Given the resource and time constraints facing the mapping team, the mapping only covered activities and programme interventions for the period of 2014 to 2016. All future programme activities that were identified were detailed under future support.File
