Danish Demining Group (DDG) is a part of Danish Refugee Council (DRC). DRC has operated in Kenya since 2005, and DDG is now looking to establish operations in Kenya. DDG has operated in the region since 1999 (Somaliland) and has armed violence reduction programmes in Somaliland, Somalia, Yemen, South Sudan and Uganda.

DDG’s armed violence reduction (AVR) approach encompasses the following elements:

• Strengthening institutions and enhancing capacity for addressing safety needs
• Addressing immediate threats to life and limbs by explosive remnants of war
• Addressing small arms as a tool of violence
• Building capacity for conflict management and peace
• Strengthening relationships between security providers and communities

The AVR approach is currently implemented on the national level and on the community level. On the national level DDG seeks to support the authorities with small arms management, and supporting peace building and security sector reform initiatives. The Community Safety approach is rooted in a participatory process, where DDG assists target communities to assess their safety and security situation, define and prioritize their safety and security needs and identify resources to address these needs.

• In co-ordination with the Regional Director, lead the process of continuously developing DDG’s Armed Violence Reduction approach in a regional context and adapted to the circumstances in the field – both nationally and regionally.

d) Finance and administration
• Responsible for  budget monitoring, financial management and expenses control including compliance with minimum DRC/DDG and donor requirements and ensuring that the necessary systems are in place.

e) Security 
• Responsible for security including development and ensuring adherence to security procedures, monitoring the development in the security situation, developing contingency plans, etc.

f) Reporting
• Ensure proper and timely financial and narrative reporting in compliance with internal and external reporting requirements including procurement.

g) Representation/Liaison
• Act as representative for the DDG programme in Kenya towards government authorities, donors, partners, UN agencies and international and local NGOs and various local co-ordination forums.
