Conflict-sensitive programming: what is it and why is it important?

Dec 2020

The video describes what conflict-sensitive programming is, why it is important, and outlines three key steps for FAO programming to be conflict-sensitive. It uses illustrative examples of FAO interventions (supporting food security, rural livelihoods and resilience of small-holder farmers) to highlight key points. The video also highlights that being conflict-sensitive can open up opportunities to contribute to improved prospects for local peace. The overall aim is to illustrate that good programming at a minimum means Do No Harm, and does not make local disputes, tensions or conflicts worse.
