The purpose of the training was to contribute to the South Sudanese efforts to build internal capacities towards peace and stability.

 

Course objectives include: building capacities of peace building practitioners to design effective training, strengthen skills and capacities to conduct needs assessments of their target groups, enhance capacities to conduct training using effective methodologies and evaluate training programs.

The training was funded by Sweden, a long-term IGAD partner in development.
