SCG is partnering both with INL to advance the efficiency, effectiveness, and impact of its capacity-building efforts in the Sahel and with local partners to deepen their institutional capacity and advance security sector reform. Providing equal parts logistics and training support, SCG supports INL in the design, implementation, and evaluation of its initiatives. Through these initiatives, SCG is empowering local partners with knowledge and skills. Both partnerships aim to achieve the long term goal of creating a living network of criminal justice sector change agents dedicated to knowledge sharing and collaborative problem solving. Working directly with law enforcement, corrections administrations, ministry officials, and civil society leaders in these countries, SCG is delivering capacity building programs to empower these states to deliver civilian security appropriately, effectively, accountably, and in accordance with the rule of law.
