25 members of Partners for Peace (P4P) Cross River State Chapter have been trained on the use of Peace Map to design peace building intervention programs and approaches in conflict areas in the State.

The training which held at the P4P headquarters Calabar is said to aimed at boosting the capacity of its members in areas of conflict prevention and peace building.

Speaking to CrossRiverWatch, one of the resource persons, Afeno Super, Research Coordinator, Integrated Peace and Development Unit (IPDU) Foundation for Partnership Initiatives in the Niger Delta (PIND) said the training is about how “Peace actors in Cross River State can use the peace map for conflict mapping and peace building”.

He added that the “Peace map collects data of violence across Nigeria and with it we can know the pattern and trends of violence in a particular area and therefore can predict and act quickly”.

One of the participants, Ukemeobong Albert of Development Option Foundation said the training is “an eye opener” as she has learnt the need to get data and how to analyze them as this data will help them do their work from an informed perspective.

Ukemeobong added that beyond just the training, she sees it “as an opportunity to register with a larger peace platform that will link me to other partners within the same peace thematic area where I work and to give my work more credibility”.

Another member of the organization, Felix Ogbodi said what he learnt from the training will assist him in tackling some of the challenges facing the peace builders in the rural areas where crisis are mostly as a consequence of land dispute.

The training is facilitated by Foundation for Partnership Initiatives in the Niger Delta (PIND).
