Our History

Before the creation of the CSC-Hub, several of the original members initially came together under the project “The Practice of Conflict Sensitivity – Concept to Impact“, between 2008 and 2012. The project strengthened the practice of conflict sensitivity throughout and beyond a broad consortium of humanitarian, peacebuilding and multi-mandate development NGOs.

Funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID), this Conflict Sensitivity Consortium comprised 37 agencies working in 4 countries – Kenya, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka and the UK. Since then, conflict sensitivity has spread more broadly in part due to the consortium’s work together and separately, but also due to a number of other organisations’ (including donor governments) recognition that we can and should be doing better in the way we design and deliver our specific interventions across the board.

This website was originally created to support the Conflict Sensitivity Consortium and it is currently managed by International Alert with the support of the CSC-Hub Secretariat, through funding provided by the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
