- Context and Background
The Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) has inflicted enormous suffering on millions of civilians in several countries of the Great Lakes and Central African regions since it began operating in the 1990s in Northern Uganda. In the 1990s and early 2000s, successive Ugandan People’s Defense Force (UPDF) operations in northern Uganda largely drove the LRA into the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), what is now Republic of South Sudan, and Central African Republic (CAR).

The implementation of effective disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration (DDR) programmes in countries emerging from violent conflict are essential for building and maintaining peace and security. In many instances the disarmament and demobilisation of former combatants was achieved, but reintegration remained a challenge, due to the long-term focus and the substantial resources that are required for such a process to be successful.

At a recent workshop in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, jointly organized by TDRP and DPKO, 40 participants discussed what national ownership meant in their efforts to disarm, demobilize and reintegrate (DDR) combatants.
Eleven African countries and Colombia were represented. Participants included current and former heads of DDR commissions, and representatives from civil society, donor countries and multilateral organizations.
Why promote national ownership?
L’Unité d’Exécution du Programme National de Désarmement, Démobilisation et Réintégration (UEPNDDR) organise du 22 au 25 septembre 2011 à Kinshasa une Foire des démobilisés.
Une cinquantaine d’ex-combattants venant des 11 provinces du pays vont présenter leur travail et leurs produits au public.
Grâce à l’appui reçu du PNDDR, ces démobilisés ont pu retourner à la vie civile et trouver un moyen de subvenir à leurs besoins et à ceux de leur famille.
The Unité d’Exécution du Programme National de Désarmement, Démobilisation et Réintégration (implementing unit of the national program for DDR in Congo - UEPNDDR) is organizing from September 22 to 25 a Fair of demobilized combatants.
About 50 ex-combatants from the 11 provinces of the country will present their work and their products to the public.
Thanks to the support from the PNDDR, these ex-combatants have been able to return to civilian life and find a means to sustain themselves and their families.
Over three days in late March 2011, 12 evaluation specialists from six different national DDR commissions gathered in Nairobi, Kenya, to share experiences and learn from each other.
How many Burundian ex-combatants chose to learn a trade during their reintegration? Where did disabled ex-combatants in Rwanda resettle? How many Congolese ex-combatants joined associations? The answers to these questions depend on the quality of the data captured in management information systems (MIS) in the various countries, and how these data are monitored and evaluated (M&E).
