The Great Lakes Project
A REGIONAL APPROACH TO PEACEBUILDING IN THE GREAT LAKES REGION OF AFRICA
The Great Lakes Project (GLP) is a collaborative conflict transformation effort by the African Centre for the Constructive Resolution of Disputes (ACCORD), Nairobi Peace Initiative – Africa (NPI-A) and the Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflicts (GPPAC). The project aims to enhance the regional peacebuilding capacities, channels and infrastructures through which underlying causes of instability and conflict in the Great Lakes Region of Africa can be addressed. To achieve this, the GLP works with intergovernmental, state and civil actors in the Great Lakes Region of Africa, particularly in Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda and Uganda.
