star this property answer text <p>As a first step to tackle the root causes of the conflict, we have been clear that a wide range of voices, including from women, local actors and civil society groups, must be heard in the peace process. This will make it more likely that a sustainable settlement is found. These groups will also help hold the government and other parties to account. Our funding is enabling the South Sudan Council of Churches, through the National Action Plan for Peace, to lead mediation and reconciliation efforts between national level leaders who have the power to stop the conflict. At the local level we are supporting a range of peace building activities, including funding the Conflict Early Warning and Early Response System (CEWERS), which aims to reduce conflict by helping communities to identify small incidents and resolve issues peacefully before they escalate to violent conflict.</p> more like this
