This assignment will be implemented in two phases beginning in September 2019 and the purpose of this assignment is to assist the EU and the National Authorising Officer (NAO) in the identification and formulation of a support programme to the consolidation of the peace process through supporting the implementation of the DDR and Reconciliation process. At this critical juncture, this study has the potential to bolster the gains that have been made in recent months and help the Government of Mozambique work towards achieving its post-agreement priorities.
