Our Approach

CoVE-MENA is supporting the Middle East Bureau, the broader USAID community, and other US government partners to address conflict and violent extremism in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Working with prime partner FHI 360 and Mercy Corps, SSG is providing the following services:

  • Knowledge Generation. SSG is developing on online community of practice for local partners, practitioners, and other stakeholders in the MENA region implementing countering violent extremism (CVE) programming. Where appropriate, SSG is facilitating learning and sharing across other knowledge management platforms. SSG’s approach to CVE knowledge management centers on an energized and cohesive learning environment that captures and integrates practical experience and innovative approaches into active programming.
  • SSG Advisors is designing and hosting CVE workshops for community, government, and security stakeholders on development solutions for countering violent extremism.
