Conflict-sensitive conservation (CSC) is conservation programming and implementation that takes into account the causes and impacts of conflict and the actors involved in order to minimize conflict risks and maximize peace-building opportunities.

In September 2017, the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and the IISD hosted a training workshop on CSC in Bukavu, South Kivu province, in the east of the Democratic Republic of Congo. The workshop was funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development.

Based on discussions from this workshop, this conflict analysis provides guidance for advancing CSC in the Maiko–Tayna–Kahuzi–Biega landscape.
