To support the Middle East Peace Process and to reduce the risk of further conflicts in the region by addressing issues and conflict processes that:
either present a substantial risk of violent conflict or high tension
or offer important opportunities to resolve or tackle underlying problems that are of major long-term significance for conflict prevention,
The strategy currently focuses on conflict prevention activity in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, Lebanon and Yemen, although also looks for smaller-scale opportunities to address drivers of conflicts across the Middle East and North Africa region. Broad objectives of the strategy in these priority areas are:
Occupied Palestinian Territories
To address drivers for conflict in order to enhance the prospect of a sustainable two-state solution.
To reduce the risks of violent conflict in Lebanon by addressing possible triggers for violence and enhancing capacity to prevent and manage conflict.
To tackle effectively key conflict prevention issues in Yemen, including tribal systems, situation of refugees and the post-conflict environment of Sa’dah.
To encourage and support relevant regional and sub-regional co-operative organisations and informal networks in MENA to facilitate awareness and co-operation in relation to conflict prevention activities.
