MetadataShow full item record
An important element of the African Union’s (AU) activities is its ability to deliver tangible peace dividends to address immediate needs of populations affected by conflicts. The AU usually does this through implementation of Quick Impact Projects (QIPs) and Peace Strengthening Projects (PSPs) in countries emerging from conflict or undergoing difficult transitions, as has been the case in the Central African Republic (CAR), Guinea Bissau, Liberia, and Madagascar. The AU also implements QIPs during Peace Support Operations (PSOs) in order to build confidence in the Mission, its mandate and the peace process, thereby consolidating peace and improving the environment for effective mandate implementation.
