Centre for Conflict Management & Transformation - CCMT

Centre for Conflict Management & Transformation - CCMT We work to transform the ways in which societies deal with conflict - away from adversarial approaches and towards collaborative problem solving.
(6)

Formed in 2002 as the Coalition on Conflict Management Trust, the organisation transformed into the Centre for Conflict Management and Transformation (CCMT) in 2003. Using a multi-faceted approach, we partner with local government, civil society and communities to find culturally appropriate means to strengthen societies' capacity to deal with conflicts constructively. The nature and scope of our work has evolved over the years as we continue to grow and develop as an organisation. In 2007, CCMT was involved in the setting up of Community Associations dealing with every day conflicts affecting communities in Zimbabwe. Today, the associations operate independently of CCMT whilst maintaining close linkages and sharing of expertise. We also conduct interventions which see us partnering and working with Zimbabwean communities at all levels, from the grassroots right through to community leaders and local government. As a learning organisation, we aim to ensure that all aspects of our work are informed by research and are currently working to develop and strengthen our research focus.

Mission: To enhance communities’ capacity do deal with conflicts by raising awareness and creating synergies among decision makers and local stakeholders in conflict processes, thus building sustainable and constructive impacts towards transforming conflict and enabling stable and durable peace.

Uprooted and Left Behind - The Displacement of the Gorongwe Community

The Gorongwe community was displaced to pave way for Mataga Growth Point. They did not receive adequate support in the relocation process and their compensation was eroded by inflation. After settling in at their new location, chrome mining threatens to displace them once again and they fear history repeating itself.

CCMT is training Water Point Committees in Epworth on governance. The purpose of the training is to equip #WaterPointCommittee members with skills to mitigate conflicts through ensuring equitable access to water by all intended beneficiaries of each water point. Because of the drought in the 2019-2020 season, water points have become epicenters of violence and political contestations. They have also become #Covid-19 high risk centers. #GovernanceTraining ##WaterPointCommittees Christian Aid Peace Direct Community Water Alliance The City of Harare Christian Aid Ireland Natural Resource Governance Institute German Embassy Businessconnect Bustop TV Zimpapers TV Network Epworth

Mapanzure villagers, who stays close to the road are concerned about the dust pollution which is caused by trucks, as the road from the Bunday plant and Asia Ferry plant passes through their homesteads.

"Over 500 hectares are lost annually due to unsustainable mining practices. Hundreds of thousands of land have been lost to harmful mining practices. It's sad to note that mining host communities hardly benefit from the resources in their areas. Harmful mining practices prevent mining host communities from enjoying their rights under section 73 of the constitution of Zimbabwe. The rate at which mining induced land degradation is taking place warrants the immediate attention of all stakeholders who have a stake on environmental stewardship. I urge all local authorities to urgently come up with local action plans to curb harmful mining practices!", said Mr Diwa, the director of Provincial Affairs, who is representing the office of the Provincial Affairs Minister. #EnvironmentalDegradation #MiningIndaba Christian Aid Ireland Mining Indaba Ministry of Mines and Mining Development, Zimbabwe Christian Aid Maria Collison Yafm 91.8 Women and Law in Southern Africa - Zimbabwe Mining Indaba Women & Land in Zimbabwe Midlands News

May peace-dreamers And peace-lovers Occupy the length and breadth Of the world
Freedom from desire leads to inner peace
Freedom from desire leads to inner peace
Five great enemies to peace inhabit with us: avarice, ambition, envy, anger, and pride. If those enemies were to be banished, we should infallibly enjoy perpetual peace
End each day with thoughts of peace. Begin each day with thoughts of peace. Continue thinking thoughts of peace throughout your precious day and happiness will be yours
Each one has to find his peace from within. And peace to be real must be unaffected by outside circumstances
Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace.
Being relaxed, at peace with yourself, confident, emotionally neutral loose, and free-floating – these are the keys to successful performance in almost everything
A peaceful world Is an immediate, utter and absolute Necessity
A heart of peace Is always the best Problem-solver
