Conflict Prevention, Peacebuilding and Human Rights

Conflict Prevention, Peacebuilding and Human RightsUNDP works closely with governments in post-conflict countries to ensure that mine action efforts are an important part of recovery, development and livelihoods.


Within in the context of governance and peacebuilding, UNDP Geneva works with other UN agencies, likeminded actors in civil society, international organizations and among Member States in forging innovative partnerships and intergovernmental approaches within and across the humanitarian, human rights and disarmament communities for conflict prevention, crisis recovery and normative solutions that can strengthen the application of international humanitarian and human rights law for the protection of the lives and livelihoods and the public services and common goods that underpin sustainable development effectively transcending the three pillars of peace & security, human rights and development.  

Working closely with the humanitarian disarmament, armed violence prevention and arms control community, UNDP actively supports preventive arms control measures to secure hard-won development gains and recovery activities such as mine action including putting in place normative frameworks that address the threat posed by use of weapons causing unacceptable harm to civilian lives and livelihoods, and ensures that the needs of those already harmed are met. Examples of these that have rendered particular support of UNDP include the Convention on Cluster Munitions, the Anti-personnel Mine Ban Convention and the Arms Trade Treaty as well as talks aimed at addressing the use of explosive weapons in populated areas.
