On May 29, in partnership with LenCD, WBI will deliver a one hour webinar highlighting the key lessons from the 2011 World Development Report on Conflict, Security and Development and a case study of interventions in Papua New Guinea, which have tackled gender and natural resource management issues linked to fragility.  

The nature of violence has changed in recent years. Battlefield wars have given way to more widespread and inter-connected forms of violence affecting civilian populations. Organized criminal activity crosses borders and undermines legitimate activities. Both internal and external factors drive violent conflict. What can the international community do differently to prevent violence and lay the foundations for ongoing peace? This webinar summarizes a recently updated World Bank e-learning course that explores modern forms of violence and helps develop capacity to confront it.

LenCD CD4Results webinar series

Under the CD4Results Initiative LenCD is organizing a series of webinars. The objective of the initiative is to foster a knowledge exchange across communities of practice on the contribution of capacity development to improved sector performance. It explores methodological approaches that have contributed to achieving results as well as on the role played by change agents in stimulating change. Each webinar will address a selected challenge examining diverse experiences on achieving sustainable results in one sector, sub-sector or thematic area. Webinars are organized and hosted by LenCD partners and participation is free of charge.
