A CMCS consultant started her mission in Amman, Jordan on 10 July. The purpose of the two months’ deployment is to gain operational and practical experience and to support the local UN-CMCoord Officer from the OCHA Jordan Office on the Berm operation at the Syrian border.

So far, she has also supported the establishment of a training course on ‘Analyzing and Understanding Non-State Armed Groups’ (NSAGs), organized by the UNSSC (UN System Staff College), that took place from 1 to 4 August. The course brought together several practitioners from the region to exchange experiences, work on case studies and develop analyzing tools.
