As a federal enterprise, GIZ supports the German Government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development. With the dispatch of qualified specialists as development workers, GIZ contributes to the sustainable improvement of living conditions of people in developing and transition countries. GIZ’s Civil Peace Service (CPS) programme „Systematic strengthening and linking of local and national potentials for peace in a post-conflict phase” in Nepal aims at creating spaces for non-violent conflict transformation. It does so through support to dialogue forums, community mediation, Nonviolent Communication and theatre for conflict transformation. CPS further works with local actors to promote holistic approaches to Dealing with the Past, that promote justice, reconciliation and healing. In order to promote local peace structures, the CPS Thematic Team on Dialogue for Conflict Transformation cooperates with partner organizations based in Nepal’s southern Terai region. This cooperation focuses on capacity building in order to strengthen the expertise of partner organizations to conduct professional dialogue work at the local and district levels.
