1.5 billion people live in countries affected by repeated cycles of violence and insecurity. These countries face tremendous challenges as they transition from conflict to peace. International support can play a crucial role in these contexts, but has so far struggled to deliver transformative results. More effective support requires sustained and co-ordinated engagement to tackle the risks and vulnerabilities inherent in such situations, using aid strategically as an element of broader international support. The continued relevance of OECD governments in these challenging environments will in part depend upon their ability to deliver their support accordingly, focused on key peace and statebuilding objectives.
Developed at the request of the OECD DAC and the UN Secretary-General, International Support to Post-Conflict Transition: Rethinking Policy, Changing Practice presents clear recommendations for better practice in order to improve the speed, flexibility, predictability and risk management of aid during transition. The guidance also aims to help donors improve coherence in international responses across various principles and mandates. The DAC Guidance was published in March 2012.
