Facts: IDPS

The International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding (IDPS) is a forum for political dialogue between fragile and conflict-affected states, international donors and civil society, aiming to contribute to successful transitions from conflict to peace.

Some 1.5 billion people live in fragile and conflict-affected states, and they constitute almost half of the world’s poor.

Many of the states that have experienced war and conflict become trapped in a spiral of violence and revert to conflict.

Seventy per cent of fragile states have experienced conflict since 1989.

Thirty per cent of international development cooperation goes to fragile and conflict-affected states.

Speech by Minister for International Development Cooperation at World Water Week

"As the co-chair of the international dialogue of peace building and state building I daily recognize the need for an inclusive economic and social development to successfully build sustainable peace and resilient states. But without proper water resources there can not be any economic and social development. So water is also a matter of peace, and security."
