Promoting conflict sensitive programming


Interpeace has become the main point of reference in Mali regarding conflict sensitive programming. Interpeace’s Advisory Team (IPAT) with Canada, through the Peace and Stabilization Operations Program, trained MINUSMA staff in a context of a growing pressure on international actors in Mali to adapt its programming to be more conflict sensitive. The training on conflict sensitivity is also done to local actors in order to create a pool of experts that can effectively train others. Moreover, local analysis of conflict and resilience dynamics in Mopti and Gao, which were developed by Interpeace and IMRAP have set a standard about how to analyze local contexts, to inform and adapt programming. A comparative analysis of local conflict and resilience dynamics in the Ansongo, Bourem and Gao regions have been published. Interpeace is extending this work to humanitarian and development organisations, while continuing to work with MINUSMA and the Ecole de Maintien de la Paix in Bamako on the development of tools and processes leading to better conflict-sensitive and peace responsive programming.
