Consultation for DFID's new Conflict Policy Paper

On September 14th, DFID launched the public consultation phase for the development of a new policy paper on its conflict work.

DFID invites submissions on how it can address conflict more comprehensively in our own work, our work with partners and our work in the international system. It is looking for inputs in three areas in particular:

* How DFID can bring a greater focus on preventing violent conflict
* How the effectiveness of its conflict work can be improved, and
* How it can consider conflict fully in all its development work.

The consultation document (PDF document 78 kb) sets out a series of 12 questions that DFID seeks views, together with comments on the general content. It would be particularly useful to receive focused and specific comments. Due to the volume of submissions we receive, please limit responses to 1000 words in total.

Please send inputs to by 10 November 2006..
