Audit of USAID/East Africa’s Conflict Mitigation Activities.

Country: Africa Regional
Fiscal Year: 2010
Agency: USAID
Audit Report Available: Yes

Significant parts of East and Central Africa are characterized by persistent instability, with high levels of poverty, weak governance, and dysfunctional institutions. In the Horn of Africa, minimal income opportunities and the lack of a political voice in these largely ungoverned areas foster the conditions that allow extremism to take root. These problems are especially acute in Somalia and have contributed to threats to international peace and security, such as maritime piracy, refugee migrations into Kenya, and possible safe havens for terrorist organizations. To address these threats, USAID/East Africa supports the development of conflict mitigation strategies that build political will and institutional capacity to respond to and prevent violence in East African border regions. The FY 2009 requests for conflict mitigation activities are $3.6 million in East Africa and $3.1 million in Somalia.

This audit will examine the effectiveness of USAID/East Africa’s conflict mitigation activities.
