The DAC Guidelines “Helping Prevent Violent Conflict ” set out the importance of conflict prevention as an integral part of the quest to reduce poverty. The publication contains the ground-breaking 1997 conflict prevention guidelines and the 2001 supplement to that work. Together they explore ways for donor governments to honour their commitment to help prevent conflict and promote peace.
They cover key issues including:
Integrating a conflict prevention “lens”
Security and development
Supporting regional co-operation and consultation
Peace processes, justice and reconciliation
Engaging in partnerships for peace
Working with business
Countering negative economic forces, where powerful groups acquire a vested interest in sparking or perpetuating violent conflict.
The Guidelines also identify concrete opportunities for donor assistance in support of peace.
