In two workshops, the project staff reflected on their work in the context of an ever more violent conflict between Maoist insurgents and the Nepalese government forces. The teams were supported to analyse the impact of the conflict on the population, as well as on themselves. They developed suggestions on how to better address the chronic fear and growing social fragmentation in the communities, and how to deal with the effects of the conflict on the team.
