Conflict Sensitivity
Conflict Sensitivity
Delivered in the wrong way, aid can make conflicts worse. CARE considers it a moral imperative to ensure that aid and development interventions do not exacerbate violence. Over the last decade CARE has established a number of best practise analytical tools and trainings to help other NGOs and donors to understand how to minimise their negative impacts and maximise the positive impacts. CARE is a member of the Conflict Sensitivity Consortium, which seeks to influence governments in Europe and the US to adopt conflict sensitivity.
