The Social Inclusion and Cohesion Enhancement Support Programme (PARICS) mainly seeks to support Cote d’Ivoire in its efforts to restore social cohesion, improve social inclusion. It address the social and psychological damage caused by the past conflict, as well as nip conflicts in the bud to guarantee greater political stability and more equitable economic growth. The PARICS will support structural reforms and expenditure aimed at consolidating land rights, ensuring the social and economic reintegration of ex-combatants, and contributing to psycho-medical care for victims of the conflict period. The programme comprises three components, namely: (a) socio-economic integration of ex-combatants in trades that generate decent incomes; (b) support for resolution of the causes of inter-community conflicts and care for victims; and (c) support for coordination, community participation and transparency.


PARICS seeks to support Cote d’Ivoire’s efforts to restore social cohesion and improve social inclusion. Specifically, the programme covers activities relating to the reintegration of ex-combatants and strengthening of dialogue and social cohesion by providing psycho-social and psycho-medical care to the most affected groups.

Target Groups

The final programme beneficiaries are the entire Ivorian population. The programme will restore social cohesion in the country through several actions mainly ensuring the social integration of ex-combatants socially, providing support to conflict and GBV victims, etc. Specifically, the programme beneficiaries are therefore 15,500 heads of households, including at least 3,700 women, who will earn decent incomes, and 3.5 million inhabitants of conflict-prone zones whose land ownership rights will be recognized, and who will therefore enjoy peaceful relations with the other communities.
