This programme aims at mobilizing women to take lead in mitigating and managing conflict from gender perspectives. The purpose is to minimize risks like displacement, gender-based violence and exclusion that occur in the society whenever there are disagreements over resources, extractions and the impact of development projects like LAPSSET.
