Since 2013, the CFG has been involved in projects in the Sahel Region and in particular in Chad in partnership with the Swiss FDFA. Such initiatives focus on the themes of peace promotion, mediation space creation and the enhancement of conflict transformation skills.
The CFG, in partnership with the FDFA, has been involved since 2014 in the establishment of two main projects working to develop dialogue between ethnic and religious communities in Chad. The first project focuses on the creation of intra-Islamic dialogue in Chad, whereas the second project is working on the development of a peace network, especially through the implementation of an Early Warning and Early Response (EWER) mechanism. The second project is being carried out in partnership with the “ Culture and Religion in Mediation ” (CARIM) programme of the Center for Security Studies (CSS) of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ) and brings technical support regarding mediation and facilitation to the Almouna Center of N’Djamena.
