Nordic Consulting Group has been assigned to formulate the third phase of the Danida Peace and Stabilisation Programme for the Horn of Africa 2018-2022. The objective of the Programme is to “contribute to peace and stability in the region and pave the way for the Governments together with other stakeholders and international development partners to engage”. The Programme will consist of the  following three thematic areas: 

  1. Strengthen stabilisation and security actors engaged in Somalia and regional conflict management capacity
  2. Counter violent extremism through prevention and disengagement
  3. Promote exercise of authority across regional land and maritime borders

The main objective of the assignment is to assist the Embassy in Nairobi, in close dialogue with the Ministry of Defence and the Embassy in Addis to formulate a draft programme document, for a new Danish Peace and Stabilisation Programme for the Horn of Africa 2018-2022.

The draft Programme document will follow the guidelines for the Peace and Stabilisation Fund, including human rights-based approaches (HRBA) and gender aspects.  

NCG Partner Anton Baaré will lead a team of three consultants to conduct the formulation.
