The World Bank’s Transitional Demobilization and Reintegration Program (TDRP) supported thousands of conflict-affected and vulnerable people in areas of Central Africa ravaged by the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) conflict. The pilot project ‘Consolidation of Peace through Empowering Socio-economic Associations’ responded to the urgent needs of the most affected communities with significant results.
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).
