UN-World Bank Prevention Report Input

01/03/2017 - 30/04/2017

The UN and the World Bank have requested DCAF support to their upcoming study on the prevention of violent conflict. DCAF, as subject matter experts, has been requested to contribute its knowledge of how SSR has supported prevention. DCAF will provide the UN and World Bank with a short paper setting out examples and evidence of how SSR has supported the prevention of conflict. This will enable the UN and World Bank to include examples of how SSR has contributed to prevention in their report. 

Mandating organisation / agency / department / ministry

Mandate outputs / products

A short paper (15 pages) setting out examples suitable for inclusion in the UN-World Bank report. 

Outcome objectives of mandate

Creating Knowledge Products: The expected outcome of this process is the inclusion of relevant evidence of the contribution of SSR to prevention, including DCAF efforts, in one of the premier development publications of the year. This will strengthen the relevance and relationship between the SSR agenda and that of the prevention focused activities.
