CAFOD seeks to contribute to peace with justice through its work with partners in some of the most challenging contexts in the world. Increasingly many of these contexts are characterised by violent conflict. This short report summarises some of the lessons learnt from CAFOD’s practices, principles and experiences of advocating in and on conflict and offers practical and institutional guidance to improve the effectiveness of ‘conflict advocacy’.
This paper lays out the case for a renewed focus on conflict sensitivity by donor agencies. It presents recommendations for how donors can integrate conflict sensitivity into their own systems and processes, as well as how they can promote conflict sensitivity in their implementing partners.
This paper, published by the Humanitarian Practice Network, maps the current state of conflict-sensitive practice in emergencies and identifies good practice which can be built upon. Co-authored by CAFOD's Anne Street.
Organisations working in conflict-affected areas are increasingly aware that their actions could have unintended impacts on the context within which they are working. This Guide illustrates real examples of applying “conflict sensitivity”. It provides practical advice for anyone aiming to improve conflict sensitivity, whether in the field of development, humanitarian aid or peacebuilding work. CAFOD is a member of the Conflict Sensitivity Consortium.
