For over a decade, Cote d’Ivoire suffered severe civil and military unrest culminating with the contested elections of 2010 which were not resolved until UN and French military intervention in 2011. This crisis rent the social fabric of the nation. While peace has returned, many view it as fragile.
In January of 2014, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) awarded a five year contract for $49 million to the Center for International Development of Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy (SUNY/CID) to implement the Agile and Harmonized Assistance for Devolved Institutions (AHADI) project.
Staff of the USAID-funded Strengthening Governing Institutions and Processes (SGIP) in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) recently appeared on Bosnian national television during a 10-minute spot on the Face TV Saturday morning talk-show “UzBuđenje.” On August 29, 2015, the SGIP Deputy Chief of Party, Ms. Sanela Paripović, and the SGIP Public Relations Manager, Mr. Antonio Prlenda, discussed the project’s efforts to support the drafting of legislation on protection of families with children.
