Creating space for dialogue, consensus building, mediation and cooperative planning is essential for positive change. In order to be sustainable, development interventions must adopt and apply a conflict-sensitive approach. Conflict sensitivity examines the interaction between context and interventions. Our projects are designed to act upon this understanding to avoid negative impacts and maximise positive impacts. Interventions – in all their variety (projects, programmes at community or macro level) need to include work with all relevant parties to reduce conflicts or minimise the risk of further conflicts.
