Conflict, peace and security

The last decade has seen a sharp rise in violence and armed conflict. As the nature of conflict becomes more complex and internationalised, the impact it has on the lives, security and prosperity of people across the globe increases.

Tackling the underlying causes of conflict and fragility is one of the most intractable problems of our age. As the nature and effects of conflict and instability become increasingly intertwined with other global challenges such as climate change, migration and terrorism, the demand for evidence about what works in tackling these complex, interconnected issues is greater than ever.

Our monitoring, evaluation and learning services help our partners make evidence-informed decisions that make a difference to the lives of people experiencing the effects of conflict and instability worldwide.
