The role of Research & Coordination Unit

The Research, Coordination and Partnership Unit is part of the broader strategy adopted by PPBA in promoting the ideals of sustainable peace in Plateau State. The goal of the Unit is therefore to complement in transforming the challenges of peace and security from the state of negative to positive peace through sustained research, systematic documentation, robust coordination and strategic partnership.

The methodology include carrying out baseline surveys, strategic conflict assessments, development of data base, stakeholders mapping, resource mobilization, media engagement, exchange and learning visits, inter-agency cooperation and capacity building.

Capacity Training for PPBA Staff on Research and Coordination

Since the creation of the Plateau Peace Building Agency (PPBA) in 2016 as a dedicated institutional structure for conflict prevention and peace building, we have adopted a wide range of strategies to promote the ideals of sustainable peace across Plateau State. One of the pathways the Agency seeks to deliver on its statutory mandate is through sustained research, robust coordination, systematic documentation and strategic partnership.

As a result, we keep staff development through training and retraining at the core of our operational policies. This year, the Research Team of the Agency organized a two-day capacity building training for staff and management titled Promoting the Ideals of Sustainable Peace through Research, Robust Coordination and Strategic Partnership.

The objective of the training was to strengthen staff capacity to effectively deliver on the Agency’s statutory mandate of conflict prevention and peace building. The training which held on the 28th and 29th of April is one out of many staff capacity building activities ongoing under the GIZ Peacecore Project.

We remain grateful for the priceless partnership of GIZ to the Agency. To find out more about the Peacecore Project, click here.
