Share & Collaborate With Successful Practitioners

A platform working to strengthen the capacity of local and national stakeholders

to prevent and mitigate conflict towards building sustainable peace, security and development in Africa.

Our goal is to build a community of conflict management practitioners across Africa. We want to build in-country capacity and ownership to ensure that local actors can replicate conflict management skills and help prevent conflict in their communities. Therefore, the portal serves as a repository for conflict management tools, a platform for sharing best practices, lesson learning and information on current peace and security interventions across Africa. It is a community of practice and an e-learning space.

Join us in sharing the successes, the stories, the news of your conflict management initiatives and peacebuilding projects in your country. In this way we can map organisations, expertise, and strengthen our knowledge together. We can strengthen coordination and complementarity of initiatives as there are many organisations and institutions promoting the value that civil society and academics bring together to prevent violence. By sharing your stories, the visibility of our work is enhanced with other like-minded organisations in peace and security. The community is as effective as your engagement with it.

ACCORD has trained several thousand individuals in conflict management, and we want to bring those trained into a database of practitioners. Connect with us by signing-up, build your profile and join our member’s forum, sharing with us your skills, experience and expertise so that the organisations and individuals within the network can also benefit from your skills and knowledge.
Technical assistance will aim to provide actors involved in peace processes with strategic support and guidance in mediation, negotiation and facilitation and will help actors assess potential avenues for engagement into situations of conflict. It will also include knowledge and information to support initiatives as well as the collection of data to support the guidance for conflict prevention and mediation.
The discussion platform will offer peace actors the opportunity for increased collaboration and partnership. Members in the network will use the forum to reflect on challenges in their different contexts and settings and share ideas, tools, materials and methods to effectively deal with the challenges in situations of conflict. The discussions will draw on the comparative advantage of the skills, knowledge and experience from the members looking at ways to better approach conflict prevention and peacebuilding initiatives. Where discussions policy implications, these will be filtered into policy-making processes.
Online support offers a single point of access to training materials and handbooks for free download. Capacity building courses are also available for e-learning to help improve and strengthen personal and institutional competence to advance the constructive management of conflicts. We bring information from different sources ensuring that members in the network keeping you update regularly of what is happening in the peacebuilding and conflict management field.
