Getting ahead of the crisis curve
Conflict prevention in action
In Kenya, a holistic approach to electoral support reduced the risk of electoral violence through data collection, early warning, and dialogue processes. In Lebanon, a Tensions Monitoring System has been established to collect data, analyse and provide feedback and recommendations on addressing community tensions. In the Philippines, UNDP accompanied national counterparts throughout the peace process. In Nigeria, UNDP contributed to the creation of the national peace commission. In Guatemala, UNDP’s engagement with insider mediation has helped mitigate tensions with indigenous communities. In the South Caucasus, UNDP reduced inter-community tensions though the restoration of cultural heritage sites.
UNDP's Crisis Risk Dashboards
To help countries prevent crisis, UNDP’s Crisis Risk Dashboards provide data aggregation and visualization for risk analysis, and inform decision-making processes on policy and programme priorities. Active globally, and in 41 countries and regional hubs, the dashboards can map trends in violent incidents, hate speech, human rights concerns, protests, and others. These crisis risk capacities are being consolidated into a new Risk Anticipation Hub, for data engineering and sensemaking, and to inform fast and effective decision-making on anticipatory and preventive actions and programming to address crisis risks.
