This conflict sensitivity assessment should be used when planning a project for which there is the potential for violence within the community, or between one community and another. The assessment looks at how the project will impact the relationships between people and groups in the area.

It is good practice to review the thinking within the assessment every three months, as well as after any major changes in the nature of the conflict.

Also available to download is a flowchart to help you decide whether a conflict sensitive assessment is needed.
