Any safe cities for women programme will involve conflict among partners with differences of opinion. This should not stop programme partners from taking action. Instead, partners should aim to include all viewpoints, and to accept that trade-offs and compromises are always going to be part of making communities safer for women and girls. Moreover, programme partners should note that many conflicts and tensions result in a learning process that makes the entire programme and its relationships stronger and richer.
