About

Project Description:

The “Community-based Conflict Management” Programme’s goal is to increase community security and peace through enhanced leadership capacities of rural women as key stakeholders in generating a greater demand for justice and improved accountability to women’s human rights in Liberia. It will build on the gains of the work undertaken by the Government of Liberia to support women’s role in peacebuilding at the grassroots level through expanding the women’s “peace hut” initiative as well as strengthening their critical linkages with other existing peace building agencies, peace committees and local security institutions including regional justice and security hubs, for the prevention of and response to sexual and gender-based violence.

PBF Outcome:

Liberia PPP outcome: Youth, women and other marginalized members of conflict affected communities to act as a catalyst to prompt the peace process and early economic recovery

  • Empower women and women’s groups to exercise their leadership and engage effectively in peace building forums, community decision-making processes, and demand justice and improved accountability to women’s human rights;
  • Build the capacity of women and their organizations on advocacy, coalition-building and constructive engagement in the implementation of Liberia’s National Action Plan on UNSCR 1325 as well as their engagement in key national reform processes which impact on gender equality and women’s empowerment;
  • Conduct dialogues with men and boys especially 1325 champions facilitating their role as advocates and champions for women’s rights.
  • Establish mechanisms for improved dialogue and constructive collaboration between women’s organization and security sector institutions to prevent and respond to gender based violence in their communities and create communities which are safer for women and girls
