Description and results


The ultimate outcome of the program for learning on Gender and Conflict in Africa (LOGiCA), is the integration of issues related to the specific needs of young ex-combatants and child soldiers in the implementation of activities related to demobilization and reintegration (D & R) in the Great Lakes region. Taking into account the special situation and needs of women, girls and vulnerable groups (child soldiers) in the context of conflict and post-conflict is to be integrated effectively to ensure equitable access to benefits and delivery operations of D & R. In addition to the component-based program management and its trust fund, the project is divided into three components: technical assistance and supervision of regional demobilization and reintegration; program for vulnerable groups; knowledge, awareness and communication production.

Results achieved

At the end of 2013, gender-sensitive programming was developed in Burundi, Rwanda and Uganda. Burundi and Rwanda developed and implemented Gender Action Plans while Technical Guidelines on Gender Mainstreaming were developed in Rwanda and Uganda. LOGiCA HQ and field staff were trained and now have an increased capacity in gender. The project intended to generate good practice on how to address gender and conflict issues. 6 pilot programs were supported in Côte d'Ivoire, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Liberia, Uganda and at the regional level, to address gender-specific issues arising from armed conflict. 21 good practices and knowledge products were developed and 16 disseminated in DRC, Liberia, Rwanda, South Sudan, Sudan, Somalia, Uganda and at the regional level. In Burundi, 231 female and 620 ex-combatants received reintegration support. In Rwanda 24 female and 240 child ex-combatants did while 7,299 dependants received transportation and basic needs kits. In Uganda, 2036 female and 167 child ex-combatants were referred to reintegration programs. 350 ex-combatants in Burundi and 1,541 in Rwanda received training on Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV). 3,591 survivors of SGBV in South Kivu (DRC) received specialized support including trauma-counselling while 71 health care professionals and lay personnel were trained in trauma. 1,000 male youth in Liberia and 350 male and 600 women in Uganda were supported on social and economic reintegration.
