The programmes in Somalia and DRC are implemented in contexts marked by sporadic but extensive violent conflict. They aim at facilitating peace building from below through training and support to civil society and community-based initiatives as well as through promoting local level dialogues. The evaluation is field-based. Both programmes have shown that external support to local level peace-building is feasible and can make a difference through infusing peace-building skills and boosting local self-confidence. But this must be accom-panied by continuous conflict analysis and review of the relevance of activities promoted, and by active strategic management. Without these there will not be any lessons learned nor may skills be translated into capacity building.
