The nature of armed conflict is constantly evolving. With intrastate conflicts continuing to be on the rise, conflicts have become more protracted, complex, and deadly, with civilians bearing the brunt of the suffering. State fragility, proliferation of non-state armed actors, and unconventional threats, such as climate disasters and disease epidemics, are amongst several challenges impeding and reversing human and economic development in the Arab and African regions. Additionally, the recent outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has reaffirmed the imperative for resilience building, early warning, and early response.
In the face of these challenges, the international community is shifting its attention towards conflict prevention that is not only operational but also structural in nature, focusing on addressing the root drivers of conflict, and creating the conditions for positive peace, long before early warning signs are observed.
CCCPA works towards building national, regional and international capacities through the delivery of specialized and innovative training courses, including; Peacebuilding and Sustaining Peace, Dialogue, Negotiation, and Mediation, Risk and Resilience Analysis, Conflict Analysis and Sensitivity, Analytical Techniques and Media and Conflict. Additionally, CCCPA convenes policy dialogues on conflict prevention, peacemaking and peacebuilding, including by actively contributing to policy debates at the UN and AU.
