Communication for Peacebuilding Priority Grant Program Learning Group Report

Reports & Surveys

The United States Institute of Peace (USIP) gave grants to three organizations - Internews in the Central African Republic, Radio la Benevolencija in the Democratic Republic of Congo and the World Policy Institute in Kenya – to improve understanding of and ability to leverage information and communication flows before, during, and following violent conflict.

The findings of the group have been shared in this report, which discusses the importance of providing communities with tools to make informed decisions in times of crises as well as the ability to distinguish for themselves hateful or violent speech; the potential usefulness and challenges of ICTs to promote strong communication flows that promote peacebuilding; the importance of community engagement and identifying local partners; and the need for stronger, more innovative approaches to monitoring and evaluation that focus on more big picture impacts than individual project outputs.
