4 August 2017, Addis Ababa - The IGAD Security Sector Programme (IGAD SSP) has initiated a project to assess and identify the presence and scale, vulnerability factors or causes and risks cross border security threats and MSs' capabilities to address the threats in selected border areas. The project also intends to identify the criminal syndicates, their networks, areas and methods of operations. The findings of the study will inform national and regional legislators, policy makers and executive bodies to devise evidence based responses to prevent and counter the threats in a sustainable manner. This will also contribute to the overall security and development of border communities.
