Reducing Inter-communal Violence
Intra and inter-community conflicts are fuelled by competition over resources, especially those related to land and water. Multiple mechanisms for the resolution of grievances and complaints exist in each county. The strength of the different informal and formal structures varies from county to county, but some communities remain underserved and are unaware of conflict management mechanisms.
Jamii Thabiti intervenes through opportunities presented by the various formal and informal peace structures, such as local elders at community level and County Peace Forums (CPFs) at county level. It also works at the national level to better coordinate and integrate interventions that have a direct impact on peacebuilding and conflict management. In doing so, the programme is collaborating with a range of partners including the National Steering Committee on Peace Building and Conflict Management (NSC) and the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC).
