One of the programme’s objectives is to contribute to the strengthening of a culture of democracy through the values of inclusive dialogue, accountability and peaceful coexistence. Through community structures, combined with capacity-building, dialogue and sensitization approaches, the programme contributes to important behavioural changes, which include an increased willingness of youth, men, and women to participate in decision making, increased information sharing, tolerance, increased understanding of their rights and responsibilities and respect for other political opinions. These community structures also identify and address local community issues like land conflicts and created opportunities for citizens to collectively plan action to jointly address their needs and priorities.
