Conflict Resolution and Governance

Conflict, Resolution and Governance

Insecurity is a primary development challenge of our time and a significant barrier to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including social and economic empowerment of youths. These challenges are further complicated by the changing nature of conflict that involves South Sudan government forces and opposition groups, and inter-communal conflicts of extended duration and marked by recurring cycles of violent conflict. Current institutional approaches and arrangements have been inadequate to address these changing patterns. Peace building has emerged as a central strategy to address conflict and accelerate progress towards achieving the SDGs. Social and economic empowerment has an important role to play in building peace, but it can also be a potential driver of conflict.
