Contributing Towards Sustainable Peace in the Coast

Speeches Shim

Kenya has a long history of insecurity and conflict that is driven by ethnic-based politics, inadequate systems, historic underdevelopment, pervasive corruption, disputes over land and natural resources, persistent poverty, high rates of youth unemployment, an uptick in violent extremism, and gender-discriminatory cultural norms and practices. Our programming is helping to transform relationships and rebuild trust in conflict-affected communities in 12 of 47 counties across the country.

The International Organization for Migration (IOM), in partnership with the Coast Interfaith Council of Clerics (CICC) Trust, is implementing the “Contributing Towards Sustainable Peace in the Coast Region of Kenya: Mombasa, Kilifi, Lamu, and Tana River Counties” program. It seeks to enhance local capacities and institutions for peace; improve linkages from the community, to the county, and national levels; and facilitate sustainable conflict mitigation and peaceful relations in conflict-affected communities in Kilifi, Lamu, Mombasa, and Tana River counties.
