Chapter 3, Module 2: Conflict-sensitive implementation

Brief Summary

Purpose of module

To help ensure that project and programme implementation remain conflict-sensitive, through the understanding of key project management and implementation issues. This will help the reader to set up, implement, monitor and adjust the project and programme in a conflict-sensitive manner (The intended audience includes donors: while they generally implement projects through other agencies, they often have a strong influence on a project or programme’s implementation, and many of the large INGOs are themselves donors to smaller NGOs.).
