How To guide to conflict sensitivity

This ‘how to’ guide draws upon the experience of the Conflict Sensitivity Consortium to illustrate real examples of applying conflict sensitivity. It aims to provide practical advice suitable for anyone aiming to improve conflict sensitivity in the fields of development, humanitarian aid and peacebuilding.

It offers practical, user-friendly information for people who are focusing at the project or organisation-wide level, whether aiming for best practice or just starting out on the journey towards conflict sensitivity.

The Conflict Sensitivity Consortium, with support from the UK Department for International Development, has been working since 2008 to enhance the impact of development, humanitarian aid and peacebuilding programming through increased and more effective integration of conflict sensitivity.

This guide is the culmination of this project and draws from the experiences of 35 member agencies in four countries.
