Peace, Development and Security

 

The main objectives of EPLO's Peace, Development and Security Working Group (PeDS WG) are derived from EPLO's Strategic Objective 4: To make EU development assistance more conflict-sensitive.

The PeDS WG aims to ensure that EU development policies and practices adequately incorporate conflict prevention and peacebuilding - in line with the whole-of-EU approach - and thus contribute to the achievement of sustainable peace worldwide. It also promotes and monitors conflict sensitivity in the use of EU development assistance, including in fragile contexts.

For more information about the PeDS WG, please contact Ben Moore.
