In September 2015, USAID’s Office of Conflict Management and Mitigation (CMM) conducted a rapid conflict assessment in Uganda to inform the development of a new USAID Mission strategy on the ground. Over a two week period, the assessment team applied the Conflict Assessment Framework (CAF 2.0) to identify key conflict dynamics that led to a set of recommendations for Mission leadership. This webinar will highlight some of the key findings from this assessment and more broadly discuss the process and challenges of implementing the CAF 2.0 in the field.
