Peacebuilding, development and humanitarian interventions aim at contributing to a positive impact on the contexts within which they take place. This includes a do-no-harm approach that identifies and mitigates the risks of exacerbating conflict, and recognizes opportunities to contribute to positive change. External interventions in volatile environments thus need to be sensitive to the context. A conflict sensitive approach systematically takes into account both the positive and negative impacts of interventions on contexts and the impact of these contexts on the interventions. Working in potentially quickly changing contexts requires organizations and programs to be adaptive and flexible.


This training provides:
An understanding of the concept and aim of conflict sensitivity
Practical tools for applying conflict sensitivity in strategic and operational aspects of program management
Awareness of institutional and individual capacities for effective implementation of conflict sensitivity


The training is designed for peacebuilding, development and humanitarian practitioners and academics interested in bridging theory and concepts with practical knowledge, good practices and lessons learned from field-based application of conflict sensitivity.
