The Global Counterterrorism Forum (GCTF) released their Memorandum on Good Practices for Strengthening National-Local Cooperation for Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism Conducive To Terrorism (external link) September 2020. The Memorandum details 13 Good Practices for P/CVE actors to consider as they look to enhance coordination and cooperation between national and local government, civil society organisations (CSOs) and the private sector.

To help to facilitate the tailored implementation of the Good Practices in diverse contexts, SCN is developing a user-friendly toolkit that includes a series of resources and case studies. As part of this effort, SCN has conducted mapping and analysis exercises in collaboration with local experts in East Africa, West Africa, Indonesia, and Uganda to identify and understand the strengths and barriers to NLC in different global contexts.

This Policy Brief includes preliminary findings and a select number of recommendations that draw on SCN’s NLC work so far.
