Report of the Expert Meeting on Accountability Framework for Conflict, Violence and Disaster in the Post-2015 Development Agenda
On 18-19 June 2013, in Glen Cove, New York, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), United Nations Peacebuilding Support Office (PBSO), and United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) collaborated with the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) and the World Bank (WB) to hold an Expert Meeting on creating an accountability framework for conflict, violence, governance and disaster within the context of the Post-2015 Development Agenda.
The meeting focused on the question of how conflict, violence, governance and disaster outcomes can be effectively designed and measured in the context of development. Almost 65 experts, including statisticians, political analysts and monitoring and evaluation specialists, attended the meeting. Also present were representatives from Member States, national statistical offices and international organizations. The meeting was convened as a follow-up to the UN Development Group’s Global Thematic Consultation on Conflict, Violence and Disaster and the Global Thematic Consultation on Governance; meetings that are part of the UN Global Thematic Consultations on the Post-2015 Development Agenda and through which the UN is facilitating a worldwide conversation on new development priorities.
This report presents the conclusions that emerged from the Expert meeting on Accountability Framework for Conflict, Violence, Governance and Disaster in the Post-2015 Development Agenda, including a framework of potential targets and indicators in five thematic groups: Conflict and Violence; Justice and Rule of Law; Governance; Disasters; and Social and Economic Development Aspects of Conflict and Violence.
