Contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals
We help develop safe and secure societies where there is equal access to justice and freedom from fear. Specialising in civil policing transformation, broader public sector reform, and strengthening civil society in the areas of safety, security and justice, we empower and build the capabilities of organisations to become more responsive to the needs of communities.
Realising our vision is therefore inextricably linked to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and a number of the goals have been integrated directly within our business model and organisational structure. The SDGs provide us the opportunity to align our individual mission with that of the global community, articulate our priorities with regards to the 17 goals, and reaffirm our commitment to working with our local, regional, and international partners in bringing about a more just, equitable, and safe world.
Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.
Sustainable Development Goal 16 lies at our core as we work with security actors, public sector entities, civil society, and donor partners to foster a more inclusive, rights-based approach to justice and security.
Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
We have integrated a gender-sensitive approach within our entire project management cycle. We prioritise gender-mainstreaming across all of our programs, projects, and activities, and have implemented gender-specific projects that strengthen women’s participation within public sector security services across the Middle East. Our organisation mission affirms our commitment to embedding SDG 5 within our core business model.
Reduce inequality within and among countries
Our interventions are based on the conviction that justice and security actors, as well as other public sector entities, should be accessible to all and non-discriminatory in the services they deliver. We work with our local partners to introduce new systems and processes, regulations, and accountability measures that ensure institutions are compliant with international standards prohibiting discriminatory practices. Equal access to justice is a core tenant of our approach.
Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable
Our work contributes towards making cities and human settlements more inclusive, safe, and resilient. Working with a broad range of actors, including local civil society organisations, community groups, UN agencies, local administrations, and security institutions, we devise and implement initiatives that seek to address the root causes of conflict, reduce violence, and promote safe societies.
