Negotiations have become futile on the national scale. However, regional interactions between various communities are taking place on a regular basis across the country. As a result, a regional systems of interests are created and offer another avenue toward common understanding. IPCRI aims to create regional track 2 committee which will negotiate the future of local sub-regions by incorporating various stakeholders. These committees will serve as organic processes of mediation and dialogue, building capacity to eventually confront major issues through local agreements.
We aim to engage local communities in a participatory process that will illuminate their current interlinks and point to potential areas of agreement for the future. This process will use the tools of participatory mapping, analysis of interaction, and the establishment of regional committees in order to strengthen the connection between the different communities and identify common principles for the spatial and urban development of the common landscape.
