The International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding is the first forum for political dialogue to bring together countries affected by conflict and fragility, development partners, and civil society. The International Dialogue is composed of members of the International Network on Conflict and Fragility (INCAF), the g7+ group of fragile and conflict-affected states, and the Civil Society Platform for Peacebuilding and Statebuilding (CSPPS). The International Dialogue is presently co-chaired by the Sierra Leonean Minister of Planning and Economic Development, H.E. Francis Kaikai, and the Canadian Minister of International Development and Minister for Women and Gender Equality, H.E. Maryam Monsef.
The New Deal for Engagement in Fragile States is a key agreement between fragile and conflict affected states, international development partners and civil society to improve current development policy and practice in fragile states. Countries committed themselves to pursuing more political ways of working to address the root causes of conflict and fragility and to channelling investments in fragile states in line with basic but adapted aid effectiveness principles. The New Deal calls for five Peacebuilding and Statebuilding Goals (PSGs) to be at the forefront of all international efforts in fragile and conflict-affected countries. It was crafted by the International Dialogue and signed by more than 40 countries and organizations at the 4th High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness on November 30th 2011 in Busan, Korea.
