Supporting Transitions and Electoral Processes (STEP)

The Supporting Transitions and Electoral Processes (STEP) programme is a five-year Leader with Associates (LWA) cooperative agreement between EISA and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). The programme, which commenced on 27 September 2017, seeks to achieve more inclusive, transparent, and accountable political and electoral processes in Africa by drawing on and sharing lessons learned from the region.

STEP seeks to assist through interventions in the areas of civic and voter education, citizen observation and electoral reform advocacy and reviewing the Principles for Election Management, Monitoring and Observation in the SADC Region (PEMMO).

In 2018 the programme was implemented in three transitional/ fragile African democracies: Madagascar, Mali and Mozambique, all of which held elections in that year. In 2019 the programme focused on sharing lessons within the region drawing from the three target countries, as well as providing technical leadership as part of its broader efforts to strengthen democratic institutions and improve the management of political transitions and electoral processes.
