Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration

Disarmament, Demobilization, and Reintegration (DDR) practitioners today have to plan and implement DDR programs in settings where there is no peace agreement in place, and ongoing violence and insecurity prevail. These contexts are often protracted, fueled by a potent mix of factors including violent extremism, terrorism and transnational organized crime. This project will enhance national and regional partners’ capacities to engage operational challenges and risks related to DDR programming, within the broader humanitarian/human rights, development, and peace nexus.

A human rights-based approach to data collection and increasing the collection and analysis of primary data is a good practice that facilitates the prioritization of prevention in Early Warning and DDR related activities. During implementation, training and learning opportunities ensure local ownership and the sustainability of the capacity-building efforts. These events leverage peer-to-peer and south-south knowledge exchange.
