The Crisis Bureau (CB) has corporate responsibility for UNDP’s corporate crisis-related work and driving UNDP’s vision and priorities for crisis prevention, response, and recovery, to support the strategic results, outcomes and outputs of UNDP's Strategic Plan. CB teams provide technical advice to Country Offices; advocate UNDP corporate messages; represent UNDP as required, including at multi-stakeholder fora, public-private, and government-civil society dialogue initiatives; promote and support South-South and Triangular cooperation initiatives; and engage in UN interagency coordination in the areas of work the Strategic Plan – building resilience to shocks and crises, in order to safeguard development gains.
Together with the Bureau for Policy and Programme Support (BPPS), the CB forms the Global Policy Network (GPN), a network of global experts and practitioners providing timely development advice, delivering support to Country Offices and programme countries in a coherent manner to connect countries to the world of knowledge, resources and networks of best practice they need to achieve development breakthroughs.
Within the CB, the Conflict Prevention, Peacebuilding and Responsive Institutions (CPPRI) team works on the integration of governance, conflict prevention and peacebuilding interventions. The CPPRI team leads and coordinates UNDP's corporate, global approach on how to address the prevention of violent extremism from a development perspective.
While a security-centered approach to violent extremism is necessary, it is not enough and needs to be complemented with a development approach through implementation of the Secretary-General’s Plan of Action to Prevent Violent Extremism (“the Plan of Action”) and in coordination with the PVE related sections of the UN Counter-Terrorism Strategy.
UNDP, with its global presence and reach, solid basis of already existing PVE programming at the country and regional level and convening and coordinating power is well placed to implement development solutions to prevent violent extremism and support the Plan of Action by strengthening partnerships.
