About US:

Our model for success is a better life for everyone and purposeful tasks for our employees.

Together with partner organisations in 120 countries, we are involved in a diverse range of projects.

The GIZ Civil Peace Service supports civil society organizations and networks in the Acholi, Karamoja and Teso sub-regions of Northern Uganda which are working on various dimensions of land conflicts. The programme promotes the participatory transformation of land conflicts using a multi-stakeholder approach where over 150 stakeholders are engaged in 14 networks (or so-called Interest Groups) which comprise of women’s organizations, academic institutions, faith-based organizations, representatives of local governments and traditional leaders. The aim of this network approach is to enable the respective stakeholders to coordinate their interventions to prevent violence and transform land conflicts. In particular, they are expected to contribute to enhanced land management structures and mechanisms as well as improving the situation of land rights in the respective regions. The current programme phase shows that not only current conflicts, but also past conflicts and acts of violence have a strong influence on the extent of land and natural resource conflicts. Therefore, the programme will place a greater strategic focus on dealing with past conflicts and experiences of violence. The intern will be based in Soroti and will work in close coordination with the CPS team, CPS partners and in particular with an advisor assigned to her.
