IPI Hosts UNDP on Postconflict Economic Recovery

In partnership with the United Nations Development Programme, the International Peace Institute recently hosted a lunchtime policy discussion on postconflict economic recovery, based on the recently released UNDP report entitled “Post-Conflict Economic Recovery: Enabling Local Ingenuity.”

 

Chaired by IPI President Terje Rød-Larsen, the event featured remarks from John Ohiorhenuan, Director of the 2008 Post-Conflict Economic Recovery Report; Toga McIntosh, Senior Adviser to the Executive Director for Botswana, Burundi, and Ethiopia at the World Bank; and Nora Lustig, Visiting Professor of International Affairs at the George Washington University. Attendees of the event included representatives from the academic, UN, and NGO communities. The report––the culmination of a major two-year initiative of UNDP's Bureau for Crisis Prevention and Recovery––offers a comprehensive analysis of the experiences of countries that have recently emerged from conflict. An electronic version of “Post-Conflict Economic Recovery: Enabling Local Ingenuity,” can be viewed online here.
