The Legal Capacity Building Programme Phase II (LCBP II)

The Legal Capacity Building Programme Phase II (LCBP II) is funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID). The objective of DFID’s support is to ensure that the Gambian legal system is strengthened through the introduction of incremental reforms that will improve efficiency and effectiveness, and will better ensure access to justice for the poor.

LCBP II is providing support to three main beneficiary institutions – the Judiciary, Department of State for Justice and the Gambian Bar Association – and the other actors in the sector such as the police prosecutors. LCBP ll will continue to develop the processes begun in phase l (2004-2007).

It will support DFID’s overall policy aims in the Gambia focusing on promoting human rights and participatory processes, and achieving better performance against the international development targets through the PRSP frame work.
