Crisis prevention & recovery

Soon after the establishment of a dedicated crisis prevention and recovery (CPR) programme area in 2008, UNDP CPR portfolio positioned itself as a key actor on post-conflict recovery and long term, peace building and crisis prevention. Following the post-conflict recovery efforts exerted by the portfolio as a result of the 2006 war and 2007 Nahr el Bared crisis, UNDP has scaled up its engagement to cover new grounds. The CPR programme’s most significant results have been supporting the formulation of policies at a national level and carrying out programmatic interventions related to improving inter and intra-communal relations and strengthening civil peace, disaster risk reduction, clearance of mines and cluster bombs, improving living conditions of Palestinian refugees living in Camp Adjacent Areas, enhancing Lebanese-Palestinian dialogue, and most recently alleviating the rising tensions between the Syrian refugee and Lebanese hosting communitiesMore
