The NCA peacebuilding programme goal is that Communities enjoy increased levels of peace. To achieve this, it is geared towards ending open, potential and structural violence. The main objective in the 2016-2020 programme period is for social groups to experience constructive interand intragroup relations. Whilst the programme is new, it builds on aspects of three programmes from NCA’s previous strategic period: Faith Communities and Peacebuilding; Women Peace and Security; and Community Violence and Small Arms Control. The programme also strengthens the capacity and sustainability of civil society actors working on peacebuilding, with a particular focus on faithbased actors (FBA).
