About

I have 17 years of continuous professional experience based on learning and innovative approaches on conflict sensitive programming and community based approaches for sustainable peace:
 In Central Africa in the Great Lakes region: Rwanda, Burundi, DRCONGO, Uganda, ... 
 And in West Africa, in the Sahel region, including WFP operations in Mali.

Conflict-sensitive programming:
I am building on my 5 years of experience focused on conflict-sensitive emergency operations in a context of violent conflict. I had the privilege of being a critical reader of the latest version of the global strategy for integrating conflict sensitivity into WFP operations. The fact that I combine the qualities of analyst, trainer and experienced coach to develop and implement conflict-sensitive country programmes. 
The current experience is a continuation of field work: 
(1) DRCongo 2018 - 2020 Ebola in Beni - Butembo: I developed the conflict sensitivity programme to respond to the conflicts that had arisen as obstacles and violence during the Ebola response in eastern DRCongo. In this context, I designed a training programme on conflict sensitivity for humanitarian actors working in stable and conflict zones.

(2) Mali 2020 - 2023: Development and implementation of the strategy for integrating conflict sensitivity into WFP operations in Mali, defining standards and practices adapted to emergencies, resilience activities in a conflict context and alignment with the Nexuses (Humanitarian, Development and Peacebuilding).

Community-based approach to sustainable peace:
For 12 years in Central Africa, I experimented with the community-based approach to sustainable peace to pacify communities affected by violent conflict for more than 3 decades in the Great Lakes region.
This experience has enhanced my skills in Analysis (Participatory Action Research, Context Analysis, Conflict Analysis, ...), Training, Community Dialogues and Advocacy, Mediation, Negotiation, Partnership, Local Peace Initiatives, Peacebuilding, Relational Gender, Conflict Sensitivity, Nexus, Mass Media, ...

I am familiar with conducting advocacy processes and dialogues between governments, civil society players and the general public. I have experience of using conflict transformation approaches as a springboard to support dialogue within communities affected by violent conflict. This approach focuses on implementing community recovery activities that act as catalysts for rebuilding social links and economic recovery in areas weakened by violent conflict.

In addition to project content, I am familiar with team management, project budgeting and support for partners implementing activities in the field, as well as monitoring and reporting on activities.
I would like to thank you for considering my application and remain at your disposal for any further information you may require.
