Video: P4P Network Conflict Assessments

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.

  • P4P Abia State focused on preventing violence from breaking out in Bende and Umuahia North LGAs during September's New Yam Festival. They are also concerned about an Ezeship tussle in Arochukwu.
