We work with local partners to develop security systems that are professional, effective and ultimately accountable to civilian authorities.
We don’t deal with security agencies in silos, but adopt a whole-of-system approach that strengthens the central oversight and coordination mechanisms that enable threats to be identified and addressed in a joined-up and transparent manner.
To facilitate this, we build agencies’ institutional capacity to enforce the rule of law, offering bespoke support packages around national security planning, public safety and critical incident response, and community safety.
We mainstream gender and social inclusion considerations throughout our work to improve security outcomes for women, girls, men and boys. Read more about about our Women, Peace and Security focussed programming below.
