The National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) and Interpeace today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for a long term strategic partnership and collaboration to implementing peacebuilding in Kenya. Interpeace is an international organization for peacebuilding that supports locally led peacebuilding initiatives around the world.
The strategic partnership will contribute to long term participatory, process driven peacebuilding using results-based approaches that will be macro-oriented, policy focused and consensually built.
The partnership will enhance strategies that promote understanding of drivers of conflict and sources of resilience, promote consensual processes and encourage new partnerships between local, national, regional and international actors for sustainable peace development based on the strengthening of local capacity.
The Commission and Interpeace will work together to identify peacebuilding needs and priorities in Kenya and design joint interventions, engaging necessary Government officials and bodies.
