Promoting a culture of peace and non-violence in Africa through education for peace and conflict prevention: Phase 1: Mapping – final report
The West African Conflict Assessment (WACA) framework was developed in collaboration with multiple West African partners. It was designed as tool for assessing the causes of conflict and for identifying response needs under the Early Warning and Response Design Support program (EWARDS) funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). In December 2009, EWARDS stakeholders selected Jos, Nigeria, to be the location for the pilot assessment and field test of the WACA framework. A field assessment was then conducted between January 25 and February 8, 2010. The assessment process included six steps: 1. Mapping Context; 2. Mapping Actors; 3. Mapping Conflict Drivers and Mitigators; 4. Mapping Turning Points; 5. Building Scenarios; 6. Assessing Response.
