Th e study aims to achieve a comparative analysis of tendencies and experiences that stem from the relationship between disasters and confl ict. It also analyses the relative success of existing relevant programming approaches adopted incountry. Th is comparative analysis aims to: contribute to the body of knowledge on the interactions between disaster and confl ict; better understand the importance of these interactions for development programming in crisis contexts; and create improved programming that responds to the relationships between disasters and confl ict. Th e intention is to help identify practical approaches and disseminate good practice – thereby helping to better equip UNDP Country Offi ce staff who operate in complex environments in which disaster and confl ict overlap.

Comparative experiences

Th e study is based on experiences from nine selected case-study countries to try and capture the broad spectrum of
possible relationships between disasters and confl icts. Th e country case studies included: Bolivia, Haiti, Indonesia (Aceh),
Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Papua New Guinea (PNG), Sri Lanka, Sudan and Zimbabwe. Each case study analyses the dynamics
of the interface, as well as strategies and interventions across agencies, and particularly focuses on UNDP approaches and
good practices.
