Do No Harm

Any project program or other intervention, however carefully prepared, can have unexpected negative consequences in complex conflict situations. This could mean that a project might even unintentionally contribute to intensifying the conflict it wants to address positively. Even for projects that do not work on conflict but in conflict environments, it is essential to acknowledge that your intervention becomes part of that context. Therefore, conflict sensitivity must be a key element of adapted planning, monitoring and implementation. The Do no Harm approach can help to realize conflict sensitivity in practice.
Throughout the two project phases of COSERAM, the program has made capacity development on conflict sensitivity and the Do no Harm approach an integral part of its work. This included training partners on these basic concepts and exploring together with them how their institutions could integrate steps and tools towards becoming more conflict sensitive in their daily planning and implementation processes.
In this section, you will find relevant documents and materials on the mainstreaming of conflict sensitivity and COSERAM’s approach to conflict sensitive results-based monitoring (CSRBM).
