On-the-ground engagements form the backbone of our work.  Engagements are designed to promote communication and mutual understanding between professionals, through sustained development advising on military-led projects thought:

  • Needs and Resources Assessment: Mitra staff work with commanders or units to understand existing lines of effort and hone in on the relevant areas of development practice, facilitating interaction with government and non-governmental stakeholders.
  • Sustained Advising from Our Network: Flexible and reliable contact with network experts, including in-person, to collaboratively refine the planing and implementation of development activities. 
  • "Dev-Mil" Training: Educating practitioners on effective cross-disciplinary communication and best practices, to prepare for and maximize their impact during interaction in the field.
