The Centre for Conflict Management and Transformation is a non-governmental organisation, formed in 2003, that works to transform ways in which societies deal with conflict - away from adversarial approaches towards collaborative problem solving.

Using a multi-faceted consultative approach, we partner with local and national government, traditional leaders, faith leaders, private companies, research and academic institutions, civil society and communities to find appropriate means to strengthen societies' capacity to deal with socio-economic and culture challenges.

CCMT’s Statement on International Women’s Day
Centre for Conflict Management and Transformation (CCMT) joins the rest of the world in commemorating International Women’s Day (IWD). This year, the commemorations run under the theme: “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world”. 

The Covid 19 pandemic has widened the inequality gap between men and women, in addition to an increase in Gender Based Violence cases. On this day, CCMT would like to celebrate the brave men and women in the remote rural areas of the country who have stood up to challenge gender inequalities, stigma, stereotypes and violence.

CCMT calls upon the Government of Zimbabwe to put women at all tables where decisions are made, including in Covid 19 response task teams. The United Nations has analysed Covid 19 task teams in 87 countries and found out that only 3.5 percent of them have gender parity. This is worrying and has to be addressed forthwith.

This can be done by fully implementing the National Gender Policy and the relevant constitutional provisions that promote gender equality as well as ensuring that institutions mandated to promote gender equality such as the Gender Commission are fully resourced.

CCMT takes this opportunity to celebrate women who are at the forefront in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic as nurses, scientists, doctors and caregivers and encourages government, civil society, private sector and all the relevant stakeholders to provide them with all the necessary support that they deserve including flexible working arrangements and provision of services to prevent Gender Based Violence.

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:
