Preventing Violent Conflict Through Development

October 8, 2016 | 14:00pm

In a world of growing global risks, over 80 % of humanitarian needs are in conflict-affected situations, and poverty is increasingly concentrated in these areas. There is consensus that the global community needs to focus on prevention rather than crisis response, building partnerships across humanitarian, development, security and diplomatic communities. This special event aims to share experiences on what works in practice, to better understand the role of development in preventing violent conflict.
