Resonance is pleased to announce that we are part of the winning consortium of the recently awarded USAID/Middle East Local Solutions to Address Transition and Security Challenges in the Middle East and North Africa: Engaging Local Institutions to address conflict and violent extremism. Resonance is partnering with FHI360 on this 2½ year task order and will be responsible for providing analytical, capacity building and knowledge management support.
According to Resonance’s Tom Buck, “Many of the causes of violent extremism are development challenges – inequality, repression, corruption and poor governance that enable radicalization. Effective development that empowers communities and creates social and economic opportunity can play a key role in mitigating these drivers of violent extremism. Resonance is extremely proud to be supporting the efforts of communities, NGOs and governments in the Maghreb to develop local solutions to these challenges.”
