Learn more about how Food Security, Natural Resource Management, Youth Employment and Local Institutions help with the development of the program.
Based upon an agreement with USAID and the Howard G. Buffett Foundation, and as an outcome of our initial Conflict and Development Strategy Workshop, ConDev’s programs focus largely on mitigating conflict related to four program areas, which were hand-picked based on their potential to combat key drivers of international conflict:
How to design interventions that build upon local coping strategies to incentivize food security and promote resilience?
How can natural resource management be used as a peace-building approach?
How to engage youth populations through workforce development linked to jobs?
How do legitimate local institutions redirect elite competition and promote cooperation dynamics?
The Program on Conflict and Development seeks to improve the effectiveness of development programs and policies for conflict-affected and fragile countries through multidisciplinary research and education.
The Program's work aims to reduce armed conflict, sustain families and communities during conflict, and assist states to rapidly recover from conflict.
