Effective Conflict Sensitivity in IRM Practice


Displacement due to conflict is still a worldwide problem affecting 70 million people who have lost their homes and driven away from their lands because of conflict, persecution, violence, or human rights violation.

How does PfR address conflict more explicitly in its IRM approach integrate conflict in future design programming? The key elements for conflict-sensitive programming for PfR partners are transparent communication towards all parties, facilitation of multi-stakeholder dialogues to increase parties’ understanding of conflict dynamics, and the creation of a safe spaces for stakeholders.

Key speakers will guide the discussion by presenting PfR reflection cases from the Philippines, toolkits and recommendations to guide improvement for conflict sensitive programming within our network.

Sharing this experience will highlight how IRM is implemented and how it could help those responding to conflict gain information on how humanitarian aid and development could have lasting and sustainable effects.
