Peace and conflict impact assessment handbook

Manual and Guideline
Originally published


The handbook consolidates good practice for peace and conflict impact assessment from multiple sources and provides a stand-alone, practical approach for peacebuilding practitioners who wish to ensure that the impact of their engagement in fragile communities will, as a minimum 'do no harm', and as a maximum may contribute to peace promotion. The handbook is ideally designed to be used in a workshop setting but may also be used as a guide for a mission assessment.

This handbook is divided into 3 sections: profile tools, impact tools, and decision tools. Each step has an identified objective, definitions of terms used in the tables, questions to stimulate discussion, and accompanying table. Together, these steps help complete the peace and conflict impact assessment framework.
