Main Activities in the Field of Conflict Transformation
CDR Somalia recently organised a conflict resolution seminar in Amara (a small village situated in the Lower Mudug region) where two clans fought. CDR Somalia helped solve the conflict through dialogue between elders in the area.

- Speaking/listening to build understanding and trust;
- Problem-solving focused on core issues;
- Joint action to express a common agenda;
