Project Description

In 2015 Democracy International conducted a conflict vulnerability assessment in the Western Highlands of Guatemala on behalf of USAID’s Office of Conflict Management and Mitigation (USAID/DCHA/CMM). The assessment team employed USAID’s Conflict Assessment Framework (CAF 2.0) to provide USAID with a better understanding of the dynamics that drive conflict and violence in the Western Highlands—especially in the departments of Quiché, Totonicapán, San Marcos, Huehuetenango, Quetzaltenango. DI’s team conducted interviews and data collection in the capital and throughout the Western Highlands to produce a report that mapped key social conflicts in the region and recommended programmatic approaches for USAID to address local conflict dynamics.
