Catholic Relief Services (CRS) developed this training in response to very practical needs in the field and has implemented it successfully in two distinct settings: (1) a conflict context in which development grants would be forged by a consortium of organizations, and (2) a conflict context in which CRS aims to incorporate peacebuilding and/or conflict sensitivity throughout all of its programming and into every single one of its projects.

The training is focused on addressing situations of widespread violence, but it can also help prevent social divisions and tensions from erupting into violence, and develop holistic responses to disasters or to the stark inequities that impede inclusive human development. It helps raise individual and organizational awareness of conflict dynamics, and promotes the knowledge and skills needed for effective peacebuilding action. It should also strengthen comprehensive accountability to those in need.
