PAVING THE WAY TO ERADICATE FRAGILITY
ROADS TO PEACE is an initiative by UNOPS and DIIS. Moving towards the 2030 Agenda provides a space for all stakeholders — governments, civil society, regional and international organizations, development banks, financial institutions, and the private sector — for rethinking the fundamental role of infrastructures in fragile and conflict-affected states. The goal of the partnership is to produce research and shape the debate around infrastructure in this challenging context. We do so by harnessing knowledge from the field and translating it into future recommended actions for stakeholders who operate in this space.
A new report exploring infrastructure's impact on peacebuilding has been released by UNOPS in partnership with DIIS.
Infrastructure interacts with all dimensions of fragility before, during and after conflict. Thus, it has the potential to both support or hinder peacebuilding efforts.
The report examines infrastructure's impact across all conflict stages. It aims to support informed decision-making to ensure fragile and conflict-affected states can promote long-term, inclusive, sustainable and resilient development.
