At COWACDI, we believe that Peace in our communities can only be achieved collaboratively, at local, national, regional, and international levels. Individuals, communities, civil society organizations, government, regional bodies, and the private sector all play a role in building peace. To sustain positive change, everyone affected by a violent conflict must be involved in the process of building peace. We believe that peace is more than just the absence of violence. Peacebuilding organizations such as COWACDI ultimately strive to promote what is described as ‘positive peace.
