Conflict Prevention Tool

Developing Multi-Stakeholder Strategies

The tool is designed to be practical, non-prescriptive, and user-friendly, to facilitate smooth integration into existing business processes and to improve corporate risk assessments. The tool is particularly relevant for companies with operations in fragile and conflict affected contexts, but the time required for the conflict analysis will vary based on each company’s unique conflict analysis requirements and the number of stakeholders included in consultations. This tool involves data collection through desk-based research and ‑eld-based stakeholder consultations. It is comprised of the following sections: an overview of the tool’s purpose, the five steps to assess conflict, companion questionnaires, and practical tips on how to map stakeholders, handle exceptional circumstances, and conduct additional research.
