Description: 

The National Peace and Reconciliation Commission (NPRC) is constitutionally mandated to develop mechanisms for early detection of areas of potential conflicts and disputes, and to take appropriate preventive measures. Considering this, the Commission has taken steps to set up a Conflict Early Warning and Early Response (CEWER) system which will help to inform coordinated national responses to conflicts. As the Commission takes strategic steps towards the development, operationalization and institutionalization of the system as a tool to support effective action where conflicts that affect our society are detected and require action, it seeks the services of an ICT Consultant to develop a web based system for the NPRC’s CEWER system.

The National Peace and Reconciliation Commission is established in terms of section 251 of the Constitution of Zimbabwe  and has a mandate to promote national peace, reconciliation and conflict prevention. One of its functions in terms of section 252 of the Constitution of Zimbabwe is to develop mechanisms for early detection of areas of potential conflicts and disputes, and to take appropriate preventive measures.

Through the “Building trust and confidence in Zimbabwe’s Transition” Project support is provided to the NPRC with the overarching objectives to contribute to confidence building in Zimbabwe’s transition through a broad-based approach around three inter-linked output areas: 1) Promoting citizen engagement with emphasis on promoting the meaningful engagement of women and youth; (2) Improved dispute resolution services and social protection systems design in marginalized and at-risk communities; and (3) Support the National Peace and Reconciliation Commission to partner with State institutions, CSOs, FBOs, Women and Youth Organisations in line with its Strategic Plan.

A variety of state and non-state institutions, including government ministries, CSOs and international cooperation agencies, produce assessments and reports on the prevailing peace context in the country. The National Peace and Reconciliation Commission, however, offers a special perspective.  Due to its nature as an independent state body with a mandate for peacebuilding, national healing and reconciliation, the commission provides a unique reading of country context; one that puts at the center of the analysis issues of conflict prevention, management and transformation as one of the key outputs. NPRC has a clear role in achieving these goals.

Considering the above, UNDP seeks to support the NPRC in the development of the Conflict Early Warning and Early Response System for the country.
