In 2013, local stakeholders from across the Niger Delta came together to build consensus around their vision for a Partners for Peace Network at a Peace Camp in Port Harcourt. Now, in October, 2014 they came back together for their Annual Retreat, during which they elected their Central Working Committee and ratified the Network Charter. The retreat was an opportunity for the nine Chapters to assess where they are and plan for the coming year. It was also a time for celebration.

All nine P4P state chapters conducted their own conflict assessments to inform their planning. They brought together traditional rulers, local government, security services, NGOs, CSOs, and CBOs, women leaders, and youth leaders to review the Peace Map data. They identified hot spots in their states and agreed on priorities and activities. Then, at the P4P Annual Retreat in October 2014 they presented their plans to prevent and reduce conflict in the coming year.

Developing Consensus on the P4P Network Charter

Throughout the month of September 2014, Partners for Peace Chapters across the Niger Delta met to discuss, review, and ratify the Partners for Peace Network Charter.
