The assignment includes field visits in Ghana and Austria, online interviews and document review.

This assignment aims at evaluating:
Mainlevel is currently evaluating the project “Enhancing Human Security through Capacity Building in Humanitarian Assistance in West Africa,” implemented by the Austrian Study Centre for Peace and Conflict Resolution (ASPR), and the Kofi Annan International Peacebuilding Training Centre (KAIPTC). This project is the first Austrian-funded intervention in the security sector to be implemented through a whole-of-government approach (3C approach), bringing together the Federal Ministry of Defence and the Austrian Development Agency. The project brings together civilian, police and military forces, aiming to improve the coordination of responses to human-led or natural disasters in West Africa.
