Conflict Transformation and Governance
SAACID believes strongly that Conflict Transformation and Governance go hand-in-hand, and as such, has combined these two sectors into one. 

SAACID's initiatives in conflict transformation include, but are not limited to:

  • Demobilization, Disarmament, and Reintegration (DDR) programmes
  • Conflict resolution training
  • Governance training in leadership, management, participatory planning, participatory budgeting, and gender inclusiveness
  • Governance training in democracy, rule-of-law, federalism, good governance, and conflict resolution
  • Practical arbitration and concilitiation
  • Conflict mitigation centres
  • Public infrastructure rehabilitations

SAACID's programme implementation methodology always involves working with and empowering local community leaders - whether for DDR, conflict resolution, or development programmes.

Weapon destruction as part of DDR
UN-HABITAT has been a key instrumental partner in building community leader and local governance capacity, leading to tangible results in urban development (such as market rehabilitation).  This consensus has been achieved through specialised leadership, management and conflict resolution training provided to grassroots leaders, using a UN-HABITAT training template. They have provided the basis for breakthrough initatives - proving the peoples' capacity to work in peace - in a city fraught with conflict.
