GOAL
• The goal of the project is to enhance the effectiveness of conflict prevention and mitigation, Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and management and resilience-building in cross-border communities in the border region of the Karamoja Cluster

OBJECTIVES
• Enhanced capacities of formal and informal cross-border stakeholders in conflict prevention and management and social cohesion building, with a particular focus on women.
• Enhanced access to income-generating opportunities and shared natural resources for borderlands community members.

CONTEXT
The project is implemented in the borderlands of the Karamoja cluster in Kenya (Turkana), South Sudan (Eastern Equatoria), and Ethiopia (South Omo).

The area is home to pastoralist and Agro-pastoralist communities dotted on either side of some 8,000 km border. Most communities share the same ethnic roots and language- and are strongly interconnected socio-culturally and economically.
The Karamoja cluster is vulnerable to climate change and prone to severe drought. Consequently, the communities often lack food and livelihood options are limited. In addition, the area is often associated with conflict and violence.

Main Project Interventions
• Capacity strengthening of communities and community groups to promote localized and inclusive initiatives that address cross-border conflict dynamics
• Facilitating access to sustainable financial services and diversified income portfolio for marginalized cross-border communities.
• Strengthening inclusive and sustainable local and cross-border markets and value chains for agricultural commodities.
• Improving the capacity for cross-border communities on agroecology, integrated landscape management, sustainable shared natural resources management and disaster risk mitigation and response.
