Welcome to the CoP on Prevention of Violent Extremism (PVE)
About PVE at UNDP
Since 2014, UNDP has built a cohesive practice on Prevention of Violent Extremism (PVE) in 40+ countries. Rooted in the Global Policy Network, this Community of Practice creates a platform for practitioners across the UN, Civil Society, Member States and the Private Sector to discuss and identify development solutions which builds on people’s agency and creates avenues for peace.
UNDP designs and implements risk-informed, conflict-sensitive, and analysis-based development solutions for prevention of violent extremism at the global, regional, and country levels. The focus of UNDP’s preventive approach is to look at the relationship between peaceful societies and inclusive development, rule of law and human rights, anti-corruption, good governance, civic engagement, and political participation, and to address the horizontal inequalities that fuel radicalization that can lead to violent extremism.
