Interagency Collaboration among Security Agencies in the South-South Zone

Support to the SSR in Nigeria

KAS is cooperating with Nigeria’s House of Representatives’ Committee on Army, and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) to organize a four-day training workshop for middle-level officers of security agencies in the South South geopolitical zone on promoting interagency collaboration. The training workshop which will hold in Port-Harcourt, Rivers State will have participants who are officers drawn mainly from operations, public relations, peace and conflict resolution departments from the Nigerian Army, Nigerian Air Force, Nigeria Police, Department of State Services, the NSCDC among others from Bayelsa, Delta and Rivers States.


The key objective of the training workshop is to build the capacity of the officers on best practices for fostering interagency collaboration and conflict resolution, including strategies for enhancing operational effectiveness, adherence to standard procedures, leadership, approaches for effective coordination and relationship with other stakeholders. The workshop also aims at promoting trust, confidence, information sharing and coordinated surveillance among personnel of security agencies through active learning, presentations, case studies, role plays, audio-visual aids, and scenario analysis. Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) is engaging seasoned experts in security sector reform to facilitate several subject areas including the politics of interagency cooperation, conflict management and resolution, leadership and interagency collaboration in complex military situations, law enforcement and internal security, emotional intelligence and interpersonal relationships, rule of law, ethics and professionalism, responsibility to protect among others. The seminar is part of Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung’s support to the Security Sector Reform in Nigeria. This program is funded by the Federal Foreign Office of Germany.
