SCG is a nonprofit dedicated to enhancing the ability of the United States and its partners to build strategic security sector capacity both at home and abroad. SCG assists donor and recipient governments to assess institutional capacity, identify gaps, develop and implement solutions, and improve the sustainability and impact of reform.
SCG’s SSR Program aims to build human and institutional capacity for effective and accountable security sector forces and institutions. SCG’s work is conducted through:
• Sharing security sector best practices at national and regional levels and empowering “change agents” at key institutions across governments;
• Assessing security sector capacity, identifying gaps, and developing strategic policy and programmatic recommendations;
• Training and educating donors to design and implement SSR programs and local stakeholders to design, implement, and advocate for reform within their governments; and
• Advising governments and donor organizations to develop and implement SSR programs.
