It is worth noting that the United States has been a strong supporter of the OAS moving into conflict prevention work and was the main funder of early efforts in this direction, including PROPAZ.
The program carved up its work into three areas: intersectoral work that supported government and civil society actors involved in the commissions; a zonal component aimed at strengthening the capacity of local community actors to manage and resolve conflicts at the municipal level; and a training component to ensure that PROPAZ staff were themselves appropriately trained and to develop a national capacity in conflict prevention.
