The Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) funded Sector Programme Peace and Security (SP-FuS/GIZ) commissioned Berghof Peace Support (BPS)2 to map the activities of German Development Cooperation (German DC) in support of peace negotiations and mediation. The purpose is to take stock of German DC experience in establishing negotiation support mechanisms, to reflect on mediation support experience at grass-roots, local and regional levels, both multi-sector and multi-track, to offer a mapping containing exemplary programmes and programme components based on defined criteria, and, finally, to generate recommendations for the German DC to engage more effectively in activities related to peace negotiation support.
