National Project Coordinator for ACReSAL, Mr. Abdulhamid Umar, emphasized the need for lasting peace in the region, noting that climate change, desertification, and population growth have led to increased competition for natural resources, resulting in conflicts, insurgencies, and violence. He disclosed that effective peacebuilding efforts must be grounded in sound land and natural resource management, leveraging existing institutions to prevent escalation and support conflict prevention and mitigation.

Mr. Umar pointed out that ACReSAL is a unique, multi-sectoral, and complex project, and that most of the challenges faced by farmer-herders are in local communities, which requires collaboration and concrete steps to mitigate them. The partnership with SFCG aims to enhance peacebuilding, conflict resolution, and monitoring across communities in the project implementation area, with expertise playing a crucial role in ensuring lasting peace for the project’s sustainability.
