Conflict-Sensitive Approach to Infrastructure Development

Author: USIP
Publication Date: January 2008

Description: In conflict-prone environments, traditional forms of economic analysis and program development are insufficient to aid an economy’s progress into a peaceful transition. The stated goals of traditional assistance are economic growth, efficiency, and competition. While these goals may be appropriate long-term economic objectives, they are not suitable for stabilizing an economy emerging from conflict. In countries where security is lacking, the goal of economic initiatives should be first and foremost to reduce conflict. It is important to recognize that economic stabilization is different from traditional economic development.
