Why does this approach work?

Here is one example of how the conflict-in-context method provides sustainable help:

Three old village chiefs rode their bicycles 30 km on a sandy road to see a local NGO in Ziguinchor, South of Sénégal. Upon their arrival they describe a conflict between two farmers and end it with this statement: ”We have learned, that we have to intervene before the wood starts burning”. Which means: … the conflict escalates.
