Integrated Conflict Prevention and Resilience Handbook

When communities are affected by conflict, they are more vulnerable to a wide range of other shocks and stresses, including natural hazards.

Likewise, the ability of a community to manage tensions and withstand shocks, without a significant increase in conflict, can be seen as a key indicator of that community’s resilience.

Poorly planned development or humanitarian interventions can also contribute to an increase in conflict.

Therefore it is important that preventing conflict must form a key component of any intervention that genuinely seeks to build
community resilience.

This guide will support agencies to strengthen community resilience more effectively in conflict-affected contexts.

It does so by providing step-by-step guidance on how to integrate a conflict-sensitive approach into pre-existing and commonly-applied resilience-strengthening methodologies.

It is, to our knowledge, the first time that specific guidance of this kind has been developed.
