When do we intervene

When do we intervene

DDG focuses on armed violence reduction in the following three types of conflict affected areas:

  • Areas with existing low-level conflicts
  • Post-conflict societies suffering from widespread psychological trauma, high proliferation of weapons and high levels of normalised violence while also being at risk of returning to open conflict susceptible to war recurrence
  • Areas suffering from spill-over effects from conflicts in their proximity in terms of, for example, illicit arms trade, massive displacement, transnational criminal networks and cross-border clashes

In determining when and where to intervene we are always guided by needs-assessments; analysing if needs are sufficient to warrant the costs of setting up and developing an operational presence, and whether there is a potential to utilise DDG’s core competences in a manner that adds value to assistance provision as a whole.

Considerations of whether a strong basis exists for a cross-cutting approach to analysis, strategy development, implementation, management, and networking may also affect decisions on whether to establish an Armed Violence Reduction programme.
