FIND Set to Update Peace Building Road Map

by ,

first_imgRoosevelt Woods, Executive director, FIND The executive director of the Foundation for International Dignity (FIND), Roosevelt Woods, has disclosed the organization’s plan to undertake a nationwide consultation on a peace building road map across the country.Woods made the disclosure last Tuesday in Monrovia. He said a nationwide consultation on peace building road map is a follow up of the previous ones held in April.He said recently his organization in collaboration with other partners convened a meeting in Gbarnga, Bong County where about one hundred persons worked on the revised version of the peace building road map.Today they are expected to bring five peace building principles that they will review after consultations in order to come out with a new version that the incoming government will have to use to foster national peace and reconciliation, Woods said.He further clarified that according to the road map documents, revision has to be done over time, because of the changing dynamics and other factors. The current documents have taken into consideration land conflict issues and gender and the roles and responsibilities that were obstructed which other people may think should not have been necessary for further implementation.Woods further stated that during the recent meeting they were also able to bring together Civil Society Organizations, International Non-Governmental Organizations, government entities among others from the 15 counties.The meeting today will be much smaller because it will be focusing on the technical group reviewing the key issues that came out of past consultations.“Our expectation at the end of this month is to be able to conclude road map documents,’’ he said. ‘‘We want to say a big thank you to the UNMIL family for their support over the years; they were very instrumental in our initiatives, the quick impact projects, and others.’’In December 2012 the Liberian Government launched the Peace Building Road Map as a document that will foster national peace and reconciliation in the country.The document needs to be reviewed every three years to make it more current to present day realities.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
