WFP’s Contribution to Improving the Prospects for Peace - 2019

Author: WFP; SIPRI
This joint SIPRI-WFP report, based on field research in El Salvador, Iraq, Kyrgyzstan and Mali, looks at whether WFP's work is contributing to improving the prospects of peace.

Established in 2018, the knowledge partnership between SIPRI and the World Food Programme (WFP) aims to assess whether WFP’s programming contributes to improving the prospects for peace, and if so, explaining how - while at the same time asking whether the programming has any unwanted negative effects. This report is the first publication of this partnership.

The strongest contributions were found in livelihood investments, in building good links between the state and citizens, in natural resource management and in community-based participatory approaches.
