UNDP’s work on conflict prevention promotes social cohesion by empowering nations and communities to become inclusive and resilient to external and internal shocks. This is done by supporting and strengthening key relevant governance institutions.
UNDP’s interventions in conflict prevention
Capacities for conflict prevention and management: UNDP supports setting up of regulatory frameworks and institutional mechanisms that help actors pre-empt future conflict, manage ongoing tensions, and reach political agreements. Building leadership capacities that engage civil society and marginalized communities, including women, to mitigate violence and reach shared agendas through participatory approaches forms the core of UNDP's conflict prevention approach.
Facilitation, dialogue and consensus building: UNDP supports government and key actors in setting up inclusive and participatory mechanisms and structures for shared agenda setting, dialogue and consensus building.
Conflict analysis and assessment: UNDP supports the mainstreaming of conflict prevention in development within the UN system through conflict analysis and assessments.
