Conflict and Extractives


1. Conducting a Conflict and Development Analysis - Toolkit

This Conflict and Development Analysis (CDA) tool provides guidance on conducting conflict analysis and applying the findings of analysis for a range of purposes. The CDA presents an agency-neutral approach to conflict analysis that assists in the gathering of information, brings structure to the analysis and leads to a strong and methodically-substantive understanding of a context with the goal of supporting evidence-based decision-making for UN engagement. The guide aims to assist project officers and managers at each stage of a conflict analysis, including: the preparation stage, the gathering of information, the analysis of information and subsequently making adequate use of the analysis. The revised CDA Modules can be used consecutively from beginning to end, or each Module can be used separately to analyse and understand specific aspects of a conflict situation as required.
