To tackle the diverse threats in Sub-Saharan Africa, we have developed integrated security offers to protect our interests, tackling the upstream drivers of terrorism, and working with our partners to enhance and modernise their security capacity and capabilities to ensure lasting stability in the region. Furthermore, we are increasing our efforts to support African-led multilateral initiatives, such as the Accra Initiative, to encourage African leadership in responding to security challenges. We closely align our plans with the Allies to ensure that we are burden sharing across Africa. We regularly assess our programmes of activity for impact and value for money.
