The webinar "Community Engagement for Resilience and Peace" is part of the series of five webinars called “Community Engagement Days.” The objective of the series is to review achievements, potential and challenges of community engagement for empowerment approaches in rural development and humanitarian interventions and strategies.

This third webinar aims at examining the role of community engagement approaches in strengthening resilience and facilitating peacebuilding in conflict-affected and fragile contexts. The objective is also to discuss the importance of integrating such approaches in development and humanitarian programs and strategies.
