Lessons from MoDA Continuing the Conversation on How to Advise Institution-building

This article highlights the lessons learned of the Afghanistan Ministry of Defense Advisors (MoDA) program. The MoDA program was based on a thorough needs assessment and extensive consultations with US, coalition, and Afghan stakeholders as well as possible support and service providers. The goal of the program is to help transform the key security ministries into more efficient, effective, and professional institutions, capable of inheriting and executing the overall national security mission by 2014.
