Lasting peace requires that key actors have the skills and access to forums and institutions allowing them to cooperate across political or sectarian lines. This is why a large part of UNDP’s work in preventing violent conflict, and its recurrence, involves working with local communities and governments to set up ways for managing disputes through inclusive participation and dialogue.
By supporting national dialogue processes, local peace committees, and confidence-building activities between people and communities, UNDP contributes to reaching consensus on sensitive issues, mitigating ongoing tensions and fostering breakthroughs in political deadlocks at the national and local levels. UNDP also works to prevent electoral violence and strengthen foundations for more resilient societies.
UNDP’s activities complement the diplomatic efforts at the political high-level made by other members of the UN System. By strengthening national and local conflict management capabilities, the results of official preventive diplomacy are deepened and sustained at the community and civil society levels.
UNDP’s work in conflict prevention is focused on supporting national and local institutions and leadership in their efforts to prevent violence, manage conflicts constructively, and engage peacefully in political transitions and rapid change processes.

- #SDG11: SUSTAINABLE CITIES AND COMMUNITIES - 07 days to Rio 2016 (português abaixo) "I studied architecture to provide housing and spaces for all, but the market sometimes complicates things. We have to survive, don't we? I came from Switzerland to live a new experience in Rio de Janeiro. I like to see and meet new people. To exchange ideas inspires me. Living here helps me to meet new sides of society - and the carioca is very open, eases the adaptation. Architecture is the organization of space, then the architect has the power to open ways to others. We need to fulfill our role effectively. The architecture was made for people. Our most important mission is to make a difference in their lives." – Barbara Iseli, 37 years old ---- #ODS11: Cidades e Comunidades Sustentáveis - 07 dias para as Olimpíadas "Estudei arquitetura para oferecer moradia e espaços a todos, mas o mercado, às vezes, complica as coisas. Temos que sobreviver, não é? Vim da Suíça para viver uma nova experiência no Rio de Janeiro. Gosto de ver e conhecer novas pessoas. A troca de ideias me inspira. Morar aqui me ajuda a conhecer novos lados da sociedade – e o carioca é muito aberto, facilita a adaptação. A arquitetura é a organização do espaço, então o arquiteto tem o poder de abrir caminhos para outras pessoas. Precisamos cumprir nosso papel com eficiência. A arquitetura foi feita para as pessoas. Nossa maior importância é fazer a diferença na vida delas." – Barbara Iseli, 37 anos #humansofrio #humansofmyworld #rio2016 #arquitetura PNUD Brasil United Nations Development Programme - UNDP UNDP in Latin America and the Caribbean ONU Brasil SDG Action Campaign UN-HABITAT TETO Brasil 7 hours ago
