Final Report: Côte d’Ivoire Transition Initiative 2 .
Project Report | May 9, 2016
USAID/OTI’s Côte d’Ivoire Transition Initiative 2 promoted messages of peace and inclusion, prior to and during elections.
USAID/OTI’s Côte d’Ivoire Transition Initiative 2 (CITI2) project, implemented by Chemonics International, ran from June 2014 through March 2016. In October 2015, during the lifetime of CITI2, Côte d’Ivoire held its first peaceful presidential election in more than 20 years. While not an indication that issues resulting in past violence in Côte d’Ivoire was fully resolved, this election marked a significant milestone in Côte d’Ivoire’s history made possible by Ivoirian actors committed to peace. During the four years preceding this election USAID/OTI supported these efforts, funding local partners, sowing the seeds of peace through fast-acting, adaptive, and responsive grassroots programming.
