Improving Aid to Stabilize Conflicts: The Afghan Case
Description: In the past decade, the United States and its allies have invested billions of dollars on assistance in Afghanistan, Iraq and other conflict zones. In Afghanistan, the U.S. Agency for International Development has implemented projects to help stabilize the country as part of a counterinsurgency strategy. Making sure that such efforts are effective is vital to national security and efficient spending. To evaluate such stabilization-related assistance, USAID commissioned a study by the Empirical Studies of Conflict Project at Princeton University. Join USIP on June 21 for a first look at the results, which can inform more effective stabilization work in future conflicts.

Improving the lives of western Colombia’s indigenous Emberra communities
Description: Colombia’s ongoing conflict and violence has caused 345 271 new forced displacements in the past 2 years alone. Indigenous communities are often the first victims. The EU and its humanitarian partner the Lutheran World Federation are providing assistance to the Emberra Dovida indigenous community – from western Colombia’s Chocó rainforest – which lives in remote villages that can only be reached by an 11-hour boat trip. Emberra communities live on the banks of the isolated Bebara river, and have suffered from both the armed conflict and from floods which recurrently destroy crops and settlements. The Lutheran World Federation is supporting the Emberra Dovida in designing new ways to prevent the damage of floods and the loss of crops, so as to improve food security. This Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) project ensures families have enough food to last the entire year, regardless of the region’s extreme weather patterns. The project contributes to the communities' resilience so that they remain in their ancestral territories despite the ongoing violence, and get better access to safe drinking water and improved food crops.

Protecting and educating Honduras’s children
Description: Not including current warzones, Honduras is the country with the highest rate of homicides in the world. The Violence Observatory of Honduras's National Autonomous University (UNAH) put the figure at 14 homicides every single day of 2016: a rate of 60 murders per 100 000 inhabitants, in a country of less than 9 million. Children and women are particularly affected by the violence. They risk murder, sexual violence, forced displacement and severe restrictions on mobility in neighbourhoods controlled by armed groups. The humanitarian needs of these vulnerable groups are similar to those of a “conventional” armed conflict. In cooperation with its humanitarian partners, the Norwegian Refugee Council and Save the Children, the European Union runs Education in Emergencies projects to provide protection and education to children affected by urban violence in Honduras.
