Comité d'action pour le Développement de la zone de Palmier (CADP)

CADP is an organization representing 23 villages that have been negatively impacted by violent conflict in the Casamance region. CADP was created with the goal of mitigating the security threats posed by five rebel groups based in the area that are acting against the government. Since 2004, it has facilitated consultation among community members, rebels and government soldiers. During the elections of 2012, it worked with the local government to negotiate with the rebels to ensure peaceful elections.
