Peace and post-2015
Saferworld submission to the International Development Committee inquiry on the post-2015 development agenda
Saferworld's submission to the International Development Committee inquiry on the post-2015 development agenda focuses on the need to include commitments to address the causes of conflict and fragility in the post-2015 framework.
Although significant progress has been made toward achieving certain goals in some contexts, it is notable that no low-income conflict-affected or fragile state has achieved a single MDG. Saferworld's submission therefore highlights key areas of agreement about priorities for fostering sustainable peace.
Among our recommendations, Saferworld proposes commitments in these key issue areas:
- all social groups have access to decent livelihoods
- all states are able to manage revenues and perform core functions effectively and accountably
- all social groups can participate in the decisions that affect society
- all social groups have equal access to justice
- all social groups have access to fair, accountable social service delivery
- all social groups feels secure
- the international community effectively addresses the external stresses that lead to conflict
