ESCWA is organizing an expert group meeting to advance the debate on conflict prevention in the Arab region. The meeting examines how diverse and interconnected risks, related to conflict, climate change and development, exacerbate vulnerabilities, erode resilience, and threaten pathways to peace.

The meeting reflects on the continued relevance of the 2018 United Nations-World Bank publication “Pathways for Peace: Inclusive Approaches to Preventing Violent Conflict”. The publication calls for a pivot to prevention and highlights the importance of averting the fraying of the social fabric to avoid an eruption into crisis.
