This report aims to improve the gender sensitivity of the World Bank’s Conflict Analysis Framework (CAF). The report argues that many conflict frameworks and agencies focus solely on the causes of conflict as opposed to the drivers of peace. Thus, factors and social dynamics that contribute to peace and the strengthening of community resilience to conflict are often overlooked. Through the reviewing of eight conflict analysis frameworks, the report identifies a lack of evidence dedicated to outlining gender-related issues, followed by a lack of guidance on how to proactively include gender and gender analysis to conflict frameworks.
