Ghana Conflict Assessment
Democracy International is conducting a conflict vulnerability assessment in Ghana using USAID’s Conflict Assessment Framework (CAF) 2.0. Using the CAF 2.0 framework, DI will combine specific academic research with in-country expertise to diagnose, analyze, and prioritize development context dynamics, including root sources of conflict. The assessment will also explore the development context and conflict dynamics throughout the country and identify factors that can contribute to addressing development issues and preventing or mitigating violent conflict. The framework will enable the DI team, USAID/Ghana, and USAID’s Office of Conflict Management and Mitigation to develop recommendations for coordinated, coherent, cross-sectoral responses that proactively address destabilizing trends and capitalize on windows of opportunity for strategic conflict sensitive programming.
