FREEDOM FROM VIOLENCE: PEACE, SECURITY AND CONFLICT PREVENTION IN THE 2030 DEVELOPMENT AGENDA

ROME, ITALY

NOVEMBER 27-28, 2019

Peace is an enabling condition for sustainable development while violent conflict is one of the greatest obstacles to the achievement of post-2030 development agenda. Freedom from fear and violence is a fundamental human right and the essential foundation for building peaceful and prosperous societies. Many countries currently face cycles of repeated violence, displacement, pervasive humanitarian crisis, weak institutions and instability. Drivers of violent conflicts and crime are often related to deprivations and grievances linked to development and its broader dimensions. They need to be addressed through approaches that span multiple dimensions of sustainable development. Building national and local capacities for early warning, conflict analysis and conflict sensitivity, dispute resolution, dialogue and mediation is critical for addressing drivers of conflict.
