The Regional Centre on Small Arms in the Great Lakes Region, the Horn of Africa and Bordering States (RECSA) is an Inter-Governmental organization with a mandate to coordinate the implementation of the Nairobi Protocol on the Prevention, Control and Reduction of Small Arms and Light Weapons in the Great Lakes Region, the Horn of Africa and Bordering States.
It was established in June, 2005 by the 3rd Ministerial Review Conference. There are 13 Member States signatory to the Nairobi Declaration and Nairobi Protocol namely:- Burundi, Republic of Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Eritrea, Kenya, Rwanda, Seychelles, Somalia, Sudan, Uganda and the United Republic of Tanzania.
The mission of RECSA is to coordinate action in the Member States against Small Arms and Light Weapons proliferation in the Great Lakes Region, the Horn of Africa and Bordering States.
RECSA received funds from Japan of Government through UNDP-Kenya to implement a one year project entitled “Enhancing Human Security in the Great Lakes Region and Horn of Africa by Preventing the Proliferation of Illicit Small Arms through Practical Disarmament”.
Part of the funds will be applied to carry out an end-of-project evaluation. The evaluation will focus on the RECSA II project 2009-2010 which received a six-month extension to end in October 2011.
The purpose of the end-of-project evaluation is to provide the donor, UNDP and RECSA as well as stakeholders analysis of the project effectiveness. It will evaluate results achieved against expected goals and objectives, inputs and outputs set forth in the project document.
The evaluation will offer strategic and operational recommendations which will inform future programs on small arms and light weapons to RECSA and its partners.
