The role of Peace education Unit

One of the areas of thematic focus for the Plateau Peacebuilding Agency is Peace Education. This unit exists in order to achieve the goal of the Agency by focusing on the strategic issues and achieving the objectives.

The Peace Education Unit designs and conducts training on mainstreaming social cohesion to staff of Government Ministries, Departments and Agencies. They also design and conduct sensitization to increase awareness and peaceful coexistence for towns, villages, wards or sub-communities. By carrying out strategically designed projects, they encourage non-violence and peaceful conflict resolution among youths.

Furthermore, they support civic education programs at the local level on a range of issues such as elections, policy, good governance principles in coordination with local authorities and /or civil society actors. They analyze the political, economic and social welfare factors affecting conflict and identify critical peacebuilding gaps at the state and regional levels.

Finally, they undertake projects that enhance understanding of the principle of local ownership and how this should be applied in civil affairs.

Security Unit Activities

Since the creation of the Plateau Peace Building Agency (PPBA) 5 years ago as a dedicated institutional structure for conflict prevention and peace building, the Agency has adopted a wide range of strategies to promote the ideals of sustainable peace across the 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. .

Against this backdrop, staff development through training and retraining has been at the core of the Agency’s operational policies. It is in view of the foregoing that the Research Team of the Agency organized a two-day capacity building training for staff and management on ‘Promoting the ideals of sustainable peace through research, robust coordination and strategic partnership’ on the 28th & 29th April, 2021. The objective of the training was to further strengthen staff capacity to effectively deliver on the Agency’s statutory mandate of conflict prevention and peace building. The training was one among a series of ongoing staff capacity building activities under the GIZ Peacecore project, which also aligns with the Agency’s 5-Year Strategic Plan Document
