Conflict-Sensitive Programming

Who works with us in the various countries around the world?

Surely, a lot of people from many countries around the world have contributed to the development of the "Do No Harm" approach. As we continue to emphasize, the whole concept is based on selected case studies and on a wealth of field experience. Once the usefulness of the new approach had been realized, the task of disseminating this knowledge had come up. We do this through workshops and trainings, through our participation in planning and evaluation assignments, and through accompaniment processes for field workers. And we are not doing it alone! Apart from CDA itself and some of the big global players, there is a growing network of local colleagues who are carrying forward our message of conflict sensitivity. Working with people from a variety of countries has enabled us to translate the "Do No Harm" concept into other languages, to adapt the methodology to different social, cultural and religious backgrounds, and to offer tailor-made consultancy services in many parts of the world.

Cooperation with a Wide Network:
"Do No Harm" Trainers around the Globe


More than 150
"Do No Harm" Trainers

The most important activities on promoting the "Do No Harm" approach have been a number of Trainings of Trainers, which had been conducted for the purpose of creating regional pools of facilitators in various parts of Africa, in the Middle East and in Asia. So far, thirteen trainings have been successfully launched, and many of the participants have become dedicated members of the global "Do No Harm" family since. Together with the two original trainers from Europe, this has resulted in a total of 168 graduated trainers. Danjuma Saidu Dawop has been honoured as the 150th "Do No Harm" trainer on 25th of May 2017.

The distribution over the various countries is as follows:




Middle East

South and Central Asia

You can download the lists of participants of all thirteen Trainings of Trainers. These contain the names, positions and organizations of all trainees at the time they attended the training (not necessarily the actual locations!). While not all of them might actually have practiced their skills later, this still provides a good overview about the network of trainers and the partner organizations they represented.
