To help strengthen the capacity of African countries in integrating the nexus approach in their policies, programmes and strategies and plans, the United Nations Office of the Special Adviser on Africa (UN-OSAA) is implementing an extra-budgetary project on “Strengthening the capacity of African countries to design and implement policies that promote the nexus between peace, security and development for an accelerated implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)”.

The project is being implemented in close collaboration with key partners including the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) and the United Nations Office of the High Representative for the Least Developed Countries, the Landlocked Developing Countries and the Small Island Developing States (OHRLLS). The project is funded from the United Nations Peace and Development Trust Fund, the Peace and Security Sub Fund which is supported by the People’s Republic of China. Through this project, UN-OSAA aims to contribute towards raising awareness of and strengthen capacities of African countries to formulate and implement policies that reinforce the interlinkages between development, peace, security, humanitarian and human rights.
