Security Pillar

Established in 2008, the security and rule of law pillar of PDRC emerged as a key issue to peace and state-building efforts in Puntland. Specifically, the pillar aims to strategically contribute to the reduction of conflict and consolidation of peace through effective engagement of security actors, promotion of peace and non-violence culture and provision of capacity-building support and policy advise to relevant government and civic institutions.

The pillar also contributes to the reinforcement of peace-building structures and strengthening of social cohesion and peaceful coexistence. Throughout its work, the security and rule of law pillar pursues consensus-oriented, integrated and participatory approaches to peacebuilding thus to ensure buy-in and support to all peace processes.
