Welcome to the DCAF Trust Fund for North Africa website

Since 2011, many countries in the Middle East and North Africa have lived through extraordinary and turbulent political changes.

In their search for a better future, countries in North Africa have identified security sector reform as a key to ensure democratic transition, to restore public confidence in the state and its institutions, and to prevent violence.

To respond to these changes, the member states of the Geneva Centre for Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF) in 2012 created the Trust Fund for North Africa.

The Trust Fund’s purpose is to rapidly and flexibly respond to requests for assistance from the governments of Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and Morocco.

To name a few examples, the Trust Fund assists with comprehensive programmes and projects to improve parliamentary oversight, strengthen citizens access to information, put in place accountability mechanisms and generally to build trust between citizens and authorities.
