Latest Publication: International Conference on the Great Lakes Region CSO Handbook

At the end of the 3,5 years Great Lakes Project, the project partners, NPI-Africa, ACCORD and GPPAC developed the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region: CSO Handbook.

This handbook provides practical information about the structure of the International Conference on the Great Lakes (ICGLR) and its decision-making process and cycles. It highlights the importance of engaging with the ICGLR and indicates different spaces in which people from the region can participate to develop policies and actions and jointly strengthen the organisation in the prevention and management of armed conflicts.

The manual also highlights case studies of successful involvement of civil society organisations in the ICGLR. Finally, it formulates recommendations and reflects on how this organisation and civil society can further develop constructive partnerships and work towards a more peaceful region.
