With the ceasefire following the Memorandum of Understanding signed in Luena on 4 April 2002, Angola entered a new phase in terms of peacebuilding. New opportunities arose and government as well as national and international civil society actors in Angola adapted their programs to the new context. In order to respond to the new peacebuilding challenges, the ‘Projecto de Construção de Paz’ (PCP)  intends to conduct a peace and conflict assessment together with its partners.

The assessement is planned to be conducted in the form of an action research project, producing results and suggestions that will help PCP and its partners to adjust and strengthen their conflict resolution, leadership, and peacebuilding activities in Luanda and in the provinces. The research will further produce concrete peace and conflict indicators that can be used for monitoring and evaluating PCP activities. In this regard, the research results will provide a baseline with which future evaluation research results can be compared with in order to better understand the impact of the programme.

The action research project will identify peacebuilding needs and opportunities in 5 provinces and engage partners and communities in the research. It will publish results and suggestions in different forms in order to be accessible for all those involved in the research, the communities, PCP partners, national and international civil society actors and government entities. For PCP, results will be integrated into ongoing project programming and implementation.
