Background

Sub-Saharan Africa

Who we are

African knowledge and experience have contributed a great deal to the evolution of the concept of SSR. DCAF’s Sub-Saharan Africa Division (SSAD) provides medium- to long-term support to local, national and regional stakeholders in sub-Saharan Africa for the development of effective security institutions that are accountable to the state and its citizens.

Main areas of work include:

  • support to the development and implementation of regional norms
  • strategic and operational advice to governments to ensure well-coordinated and holistic reforms
  • strengthening of internal accountability and control mechanisms in security institutions
  • support to external oversight actors, including parliaments, independent bodies and civil society
