COPA sees itself as a resource for peace groups.  A number of peace builders around Africa work hard and put a lot of energy in their work.  However many of their initiatives particularly at the community level remain undocumented as a learning tool for others.  

COPA set up a resource center in both its office in Kenya but also in the website with publications and materials on peace building and conflict resolution with a bias towards African peace work however material applicable to many global conflict and post conflict countries.  This would be an important source of information for students, academics, and peace actors as well as a forum for discussion.  The resource center aims to attract more research materials on missing data and on deepening knowledge on existing materials.  

COPA has links with other continental and regional research institutions to promote working with each other on thematic areas.  COPA is producing regular e-newsletters to inform its members and other peacebuilders of its recent activities as well as briefs which will be discussing contemporary peace themes.
