DILI, 22 september, 2021 (TATOLI)—State Secretariat for Civil Protection (SEPS) with support from UN Women has resumed the Training of Trainers (ToT) on Gender Sensitive Conflict Prevention and Resolution (GSCPR) for 12 mediators.

Secretary of State Civil Protection (SEPS), Joaquim José Gusmão dos Reis Martins said the 12 mediators who participated in this training were selected from the National Directorate of Community Conflict Prevention (NDCCP) at SEPS. The participants were from some municipalities except Manatuto and RAEOA.

“SSCP working together with UN Women conducted training for the selective mediators that qualified with the ability to participate in ToT program. After the training the trainers will share with the community what they have received regarding public agencies on problem-solving,” Joaquim explained to reporters in Delta Nova, today.

The training is funded by the UN Women with a total budget of $60,000 in NDCCP and also for 2025 planning preparedness.

Program Analyst of Women’s Peace and Security at UN Women Timor-Leste, Leonia Tecla da Silva said this training focused on training issues in gender-sensitive areas, community conflicts, conflict analysis, and processes of resolving these issues.

“We wish everyone to fully participate in the mediation process and peace stability. 46% of participants are women from government institution NDCCP,” Leonia said

ToT participant, Julião Fernandes said that the training is important because it will increase the participant capacity in the mediate gender services to work with local authorities and Non-Governmental Organizations to resolving conflicts in the community.

It is recalled that the SSCP and UNW have signed an agreement letter early on July 28, 2021, for the second period of PAN 1325 FPS. The fund was provided by UN Women with the amount of 60 thousand USD dollars for the National Direction Conflict Prevention (NDCP) program.
