Etude cartographique des projets exemplaires en matière de Réforme des systèmes de sécurité (RSS) dans l’espace francophone

mandate in DRC, Cote d'Ivoire, Guinea-Conakry, Mali 03.10.2016. - 09.01.2017.

Bien que 60% des pays sortant d’un conflit et fragilisés soient francophones, il y a très peu d’information disponible en français sur la réforme du secteur de la sécurité (RSS). En outre, seul le site Internet du DCAF-ISSAT est (partiellement) disponible en français et dédié à la RSS. Les commentaires de  certains de nos membres du « Comité de direction », de membres de notre « communauté des praticiens », de même que ceux que nous recevons à l’issue de nos formations avancées sur la RSS font apparaitre qu’il existe une demande non satisfaite en matière de ressources disponibles en français, particulièrement s’agissant des outils, des tendances, des défis et des bonnes pratiques de la RSS. 


EU SSR Policy - Country case studies Mali, DRC and Ukraine

EU mandate in DRC, Mali, Ukraine 13.09.2015. - 11.03.2016.

The Council Conclusions of 18 May 2015 launched the process of reviewing the EU SSR policies by mid-2016 with the aim of developing an EU-wide strategic framework for supporting SSR. Within this timeframe a certain number of steps needed to be carried out to take stock of where the EU stands in terms of SSR. These included what are the main lessons identified over the last decade, what has been learned and how could the good practices be integrated and bring added value to future EU support to SSR processes in partner countries.

This mandate was to support the EU in this stocktaking exercise, focusing on the analysis of three countries where the EU has supported SSR processes: DRC, Mali and Ukraine. The main objectives were to:

1) capture recent and hands-on experience from EU support to SSR across the different regions of the world;

2) analyse what works/does not work; and

3) identify the good practices to inform the new EU-wide strategic framework on SSR

Evaluation of UNDP DRC Community Policing Programme

UN mandate in DRC 12.09.2015. - 29.09.2015.

UNDP has asked for ISSAT’s support in evaluating its Community Policing Programme in DRC. The Programme’s Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed in 2013 and it will reach the end of its currently planned for span in 23 March 2016. The main focus of the programme has been in Kinshasa and Bunia with some training activities in Kasanga.

UNDP has mandated ISSAT to set up a three-person team (governance focus, police focus and evaluation methodology focus) to conduct a two-week evaluation mission to the main target areas of the programme and its sustainability regarding possible international support for a second phase.

The main objective of the evaluation is to look at the impact, sustainability, efficiency, effectiveness and relevance of the programme.

The mandate will also focus on building the capacity of the UNDP programme team in terms of institutional evaluation methodology. These skills will be used by the team to roll out similar future activities in Ituri.
