Preventing and Responding to Violent Extremism in Africa: A Development Approach

May 12, 2017

This four-year regional development project is designed to strengthen the development responses to mitigate the growth of violent extremism in Africa.


This focus is motivated by the ever-increasing presence of violent extremist groups on African soil. Violent extremism is having a devastating impact on the lives and livelihoods of populations across the continent - particularly the most vulnerable, and including youth, women and children.
