Conflict and Development Analysis-The Gambia
2018. Author: Government of The Gambia, WANEP, Joint UNDP-DPA Programme and UNOWAS
In order to systemically assess the nature of peace and conflict dynamics amidst transformations shaping The Gambia today, a participatory, inclusive, and nationally-driven Conflict and Development Analysis (CDA) was conducted between April and May of 2018. This report provides a methodological overview and description of analytical findings revealed through the CDA process, illuminating strategic areas of attention and a set of targeted recommendations, which emerge in service of sustaining progress and stability in the country. The analysis was carried out by a Project Management Team consisting of the Government of the Gambia through the Ministry of the Interior, and the West Africa Network for Peacebuilding-The Gambia (WANEP). Support also came from the United Nations, under the Joint UNDP-DPA Programme for Building National Capacities for Conflict Prevention. The primary value of this study’s methodology, is thus the participatory, inclusive, and Gambian-driven systems analysis for understanding critical issues around how the key conflict dynamics, as well as existing engines for peace operate or manifest, shaping the Gambian context today.
