Resilience for Peace (R4P) in Côte d'Ivoire
The USAID–funded Resilience for Peace (R4P) project held its Annual Learning Summit (ALS) from January 31 to February 2, 2023, in Korhogo, Côte d’Ivoire. The ALS offered a platform for international and local researchers to present 11 research papers related to Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism , including 4 studies produced by R4P. Research presented at the event uncovered key information related to violent extremism, community resilience, natural resources management, governance, and online threats, and engaged stakeholders in discussing solutions.
“It deepened knowledge and understanding of the contexts and dynamics of violent extremism. The results of the research presented and the experiences shared will make it possible to promote and develop actions to strengthen the resilience of communities and improve the security response.”
Over the course of three days, high level participants from international and local organizations, USAID, the Ivorian government, researchers from the University of Bouaké as well as community leaders from northern Cote d’Ivoire discussed evidence related to violent extremism and lessons learned for future programming and P/CVE efforts.
