Regional Conflict Management & Governance

Undefined

Program overview

The USAID/EA Regional Conflict Management and Governance (RCMG) program works to promote stability along the borders of Kenya, Uganda, South Sudan, Ethiopia, and Somalia.  RCMG supports cross-border peace networks, and is building the capabilities of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development’s (IGAD) Conflict Early Warning and Response Mechanism (CEWARN).

In the Great Lakes region, USAID/EA is building the capability of the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR) to regulate trade in tin, tantalum, tungsten, and gold - “conflict minerals”.

In the Central African Republic (CAR), USAID/EA conflict mitigation programs seek to mitigate ongoing widespread violence and address its aftermath. USAID/EA is also helping communities in southeastern CAR to improve their security situation through better preparedness for attacks and threats from the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA).
