DCAF-ISSAT has a programme of support to UNDP designed to assist them in improving their strategic monitoring capability in support of the Global Programme on Strengthening the Rule of Law and Human Rights for Sustaining Peace and Fostering Development. This programme involves conducting a series of evaluations of country programme outcomes, and using these to inform the development of the Global Programme strategic result reporting.
UNDP has requested that DCAF-ISSAT evaluate the 2015-2017 phase of the Jordan country programme “Community Security and Access to Justice” as part of this series of evaluations. This evaluation will build upon the evidence base developed in the first evaluation of this series, of the Guinea-Bissau programme. It will start the process of understanding the range of UNDP activities occurring under the Global Programme, and thus contribute to the development of the strategic guidance on result reporting and monitoring at the global level (the mandate will also include the extraction of findings from the Jordan evaluation to feed into the strategic monitoring framework).
The course will bring together approximately 25 participants who wish to develop key skills and competencies for future field deployment in Peace Support Operations. The target audience includes military personnel from various countries (in past years e.g. Switzerland, Thailand, China, Jordan, Algeria, Serbia and Kazakhstan).
