Effects of Natural Disasters on Agricultural Production Activities in the Cambodia-Laos-Vietnam Development Triangle Area: Case Studies of Ratanakiri (Cambodia), Attapeu (Laos) and Kon Tum (Vietnam) Provinces
The Cambodia-Laos-Vietnam Development Triangle (CLVDT) area is strategically placed vis-à-vis the economic, social and ecological-environmental aspects of the three countries involved.
The World Humanitarian Summit was held in Istanbul on 23 and 24 May 2016 bringing together 9000 participants from 173 governments, the private sector, civil society and non-governmental organizations.
The Summit’s three main goals were (1) to recommit to humanity and humanitarian principles; (2) to enable countries and communities to better prepare for and respond to crises, and be more resilient to shocks; and (3) to share people-centred humanitarian best practices to save lives and alleviate suffering.

Women in Conflict Affected Countries and Peace Building
This NTS Insight explores the changing nature of conflict since the late 1990s where women and children were increasingly used as weapons of war. Since its passage in October 2000, the UNSCR 1325 has significantly advanced women’s rights in conflict situations and brought to light the absence of women in negotiations and peace-building efforts. The number of peace agreements incorporating women’s rights have increased over the years. Despite this progress, a lot remains to be done.
