Our work in Statebuilding and Peacebuilding
Almost half of the world’s poor are expected to live in countries affected by fragility, conflict and violence by 2030 (source). We support statebuilding and peacebuilding in conflict-affected areas by focusing on strengthening institutions and promoting capable and accountable governments. We aim to improve people's ability to go about their daily business, free from violence and crime - supported by a non-abusive police service, an effective army and a legal system that can be relied upon to resolve disputes fairly. Our work aims to lay the foundations for stability, security and growth:
- Developing options and recommendations to determine the appropriate structure and content of programmes to deliver on the expected outcome of DFID's Governance and Peacebuilding programme in Somalia, including the balance of focus and investment across all potential intervention areas to have the greatest impact; development of log frames and risk matrices; and thematic analysis for gender, pastoralism, security and justice and youth sectors in Somalia (DFID, 2011).
- Providing long-term governance advice and technical assistance support to Somalia donors, for the development of donor governance policy for Somalia and the restructuring of aid provision within a coordinated aid framework. In particular, we supported DFID in articulating their theory of change to peace building and governance interventions. This included conducting the Governance and Peacebuilding programme (GAP) results/impact assessment, to support submission for the next phase of support. We went onto develop DFID's Stage 1 Business Case, for its 90 million GAP programme, incorporating the theory of change to develop a strategic case and feasibility options for engagement (DFID, 2010-2011).
