Joint UNDP-DPPA Programme - Prodoc 2024-2028

2024. Author: Joint UNDP-DPPA Programme

The Joint UNDP-DPPA Programme on Building National Capacities for Conflict Prevention (Joint Programme) embarks on its new phase (2024-2028) in a global context of new and protracted conflicts, intersecting crises, and multiple adverse impacts on progress towards the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Against this background, in his policy brief on A New Agenda for Peace, the United Nations Secretary-General is calling for prevention to be elevated as a political priority and proposed a shift in paradigm whereby all States agree to tackle the drivers of violence within their societies. The Joint Programme will support national stakeholders enhance their capacities and structures for conflict prevention, primarily through the deployment of international and national Peace and Development Advisors (PDAs) to complex settings. Reporting to the Resident Coordinator, UNDP Resident Representative and DPPA, and working closely with the wider UN System, PDAs provide analytical, advisory, and capacity-development assistance to national stakeholders to enhance capacities for dialogue, develop prevention policies and strategies, strengthen national infrastructures for peace and help foster the engagement of women and youth in these efforts. Through the PDAs’ role in advising UN leadership and providing technical support on programme design, the Joint Programme will strengthen the capacities of the UN in the areas of integrated conflict analysis, conflict-sensitive development, conflict prevention, peacebuilding and preventive diplomacy, and contribute to system-wide thought leadership and learning.
