Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is a federal enterprise that supports the German government in achieving its objectives in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development.
The Civil Peace Service (CPS) Program / Ziviler Friedensdienst (ZFD) was founded in 1999 as a cooperation of nine German agencies working in the field of non-violent conflict transformation with the German Federal Ministry for International Cooperation and Development as donor. GIZ is one of these agencies. The mission of CPS is to build peace with partners in conflict- and post-conflict societies around the world. Today, CPS programs are implemented in 22 countries. In Ukraine, the program started to work 2018 and is still developing.
The GIZ Civil Peace Service (CPS) country program in Ukraine focuses on a positive approach to diversity and on reducing prejudices and stereotypes. It aims to counteract social polarization in Eastern Ukraine by supporting education and community dialogue and promoting non-violent conflict transformation. GIZ CPS Ukraine cooperates with civil society as well as with state institutions.
Impact oriented "Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation" (PM&E) is a cross-cutting key feature in the conceptualization and management of CPS programs. There are special guidelines of CPS for PM&E which are based on the method of "Reflecting on Peace Practice" (Mary Anderson). In the strategic planning for the program and its components, realizable "theories of change" will be designed together with partners in a conflict-sensitive way. Other cross-cutting issues like human rights, gender equality and participatory approaches have to be integrated. For monitoring and reporting to the donor, results from all activities must be collected and aggregated in an efficient way.
