Armed conflicts has been prevalent the world over, especially the African continent is faced with numerous of these conflicts and this hinders development, thereby affecting the continents’ peace, democracy and prosperity. The eruption of conflicts begins the mandating of mission to restore normalcy.
Mission environments are mostly different from the regular work environments people are accustomed to. Much as it is desirable to have peace around us, the environments within which we work is an enabler or a dream killer. Mission environments are typically not very conducive, talk about general living conditions, weather, conflict, food, language, epidemic, exploitation among others.
