The European Union Programme for the Prevention of Violent Extremism in West Africa and the Lake Chad Region aims to support decision-makers at all levels (European Union delegations, governments, decentralised authorities of the countries concerned, as well as technical and financial partners) to acquire a better knowledge of the phenomena of radicalisation and violent extremism in West Africa, to operationalise their prevention strategies and to support the implementation of concrete and relevant pilot actions led by West African civil society organisations with initiatives on this issue.
The general objective of the action is to support stakeholders (decision making bodies at all levels - including EU delegations, governments, local authorities and donors) to formulate and implement in an efficient and coordinated way concrete projects for the prevention of radicalisation and violent extremism in West Africa, based on a precise and relevant analysis of the factors explaining the phenomenon, of the strategies and programmes to be deployed as well as of the key actors to be involved. This general objective is based on 3 specific objectives:
The budget of the action to be evaluated is € 4.000.000; the Programme started in February 2018 and ended in January 2020.
The general objective of the project is to provide the competent services of the European Union with the final evaluation of the PPREV-EU II programme by analysing its achievements, the attainment and the
quality of the results of these actions in the context of a cooperation policy oriented towards results and contribution to the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals.
