Local organizations play a valuable role in managing scarcity and competition as well as in pioneering new approaches to adaptation. Thus they are critical actors in avoiding and resolving conflict. Ensuring that local communities enjoy full recognition and fulfilment of their human and cultural rights to pursue locally-valued and legitimate governance, including their traditional normative and governance systems, is an intrinsic part of facilitating decisions that are conflict sensitive.
