Profile

Dr Alex Ntung is an independent research consultant with over ten years of experience. He specialises in the Great Lakes Region of Africa (DRC – Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi and South Sudan). Mr Ntung’s consulting services serve as a powerful tool and resource to enhance donors’ and aid agencies’ capacity building and promote policies and programs that are more realistic, based on institutions’ configurations and better adapted to grassroots needs. He frequently produces desk-based country expert reports on various countries in Africa. He has gained a wide range of experience in participatory research programs and stakeholders’ engagement, including political mediation for civil society organisations in conflict-affected areas. Dr Ntung uses culturally appropriate techniques to advise on political risks and cultural insensitivities in responses to conflict and political engagement. He is an experienced trainer and workshop facilitator;  he uses various methods and problem-solving approaches, including the theory of change in social and economic development contexts.

Dr Ntung is a published author. I have produced over 300 research-based reports, analytical papers, and scoping studies, including a national award-winning training resource to support education institutions to teach and respond to conflict induced refugees’ issues. I have supported a successful M&E and implementation of a £90 million mini-grids project in the DRC. I was part of a joint civil society leadership (Amnesty International and Global Movement Against Arms Trade) that successfully campaigned to achieve a global Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) – an international law imposing strict rules to regulate international arms transfers. I have co-facilitated a high-level political
mediation/negotiation between the government officials and some former war lords and armed group leaders in the DRC.
