The Community Governance and Grievance Management Project of the Ministry of Provincial Government and Institutional Strengthening (with funding from World Bank) is currently preparing an analysis of and strategy for gender and social inclusion in local conflict resolution, drafted by Dr Anouk Ride.
The project aims to strengthen community grievance management capabilities and enhance the effectiveness of linkages with government in targeted communities. Works with participating provincial governments to fulfill key responsibilities associated with the selection, contracting, coordination, reporting, performance management and supervision of Community Officers (COs). The aim of the COs work is to build relationships between community leaders and members to address disputes and to build relationships and links between communities and the Police, Provincial Government and the Solomon Islands Government.
The Gender and Social Inclusion Strategy will be launched later in 2017.
