Free Online Courses at the CSF


Welcome to the Conflict Sensitivity Facility (CSF) Course Centre.


In addition to our regular facilitated courses, the CSF’s knowledge hub has a growing number of short online, self-guided courses that are open to the aid sector in Sudan.  These courses are designed to be flexibly and easily taken, according to the participant’s own schedule or time.  They are between 1 and 2 hours long, depending on the speed of the user.

We recommend these as an integral part of any organisation’s induction process, and a way for more senior staff to gain additional knowledge on a flexible schedule.

You will need to be logged into our website to join our courses. If you are not yet registered, simply register here and navigate back to the Course Centre to begin your training.

Arabic versions of all courses are in production, and will be shared when they are ready!

Land Conflicts and Aid in Sudan

Land use patterns and trends in Sudan are inextricably tied to a wide range of dynamics that shape the country’s potential for both peace and conflict. This course will briefly explore the main features of these dynamics and how they interact with the massive humanitarian relief and development efforts currently underway in Sudan, which have the potential to drive or mitigate potential land-based conflicts.
