Cohort II: Local ownership and capacities

The second cohort was jointly organized by UNDP and the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI) in partnership with the Joint UNDP-DPA Programme.

 This cohort was designed to allow the Fellows to reflect on the issue of promoting local ownership and the building of resilient local and national capabilities for conflict prevention and sustaining peace, drawing on their concrete experiences from various regions in the world.

The Fellows worked on extensively engaging with research and policy institutions based in Oslo and sharing experiences in how they have effectively promoted local ownership and built capacities for conflict prevention and the kind of engagement they have had with local communities and national stakeholders. This cohort ultimately assessed what works and where are the gaps in this area.
