 This learning brief documents learning around promising programme approaches that can support decision-making and resource allocation processes towards durable solutions to food crises. More specifically it provides an overview of the linkages between the conflict-sensitive programming approach undertaken by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in Somalia and the related adjustments into the Global Network against Food Crises (GNAFC) project implementation. The brief showcases key learning on the role of water governance in reducing local-level natural resource-based conflict in the Lower Shabelle region of Somalia. Conflict‑sensitive programming - informed by a context analysis – is a fundamental requirement so that projects and programmes are undertaken with a clear understanding of contextual dynamics, thereby lessening their potential to exacerbate tensions, disputes, and conflicts while enhancing contributions to sustaining peace.
