The International Dialogue

The International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding (IDPS) is the first forum for political dialogue bringing together countries affected by conflict and fragility, development partners, and civil society. Through its platform, IDPS aims to build political momentum for change and trust between fragile and conflict affected countries, development partners, and civil society, seeking to transform the way national and international partners work together to promote peacebuilding and statebuilding and work towards country led pathways out of fragility. 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 member organisations of the Civil Society Platform for Peacebuilding and Statebuilding (CSPPS). The Secretariat of the International Dialogue is hosted by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).


The New Deal

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.

Key constituencies

g7+ Countries

The g7+ is a voluntary association of 20 countries that are or have been affected by conflict and are now in transition to the next stage of development. The main objective of the g7+ is to share experiences and learn from one another, and to advocate for reforms to the way the international community engages in conflict-affected and fragile states.


The International Network on Conflict and Fragility (INCAF), a subset of the OECD Development Assistance Committee (DAC), is a forum which helps development partners and international organisations respond to conflict and fragility by working on cutting-edge policy and programming.

Civil Society Platform

The Civil Society Platform for Peacebuilding and Statebuilding (CSPPS) brings together a diverse group of Civil Society Organizations (CSO) and experts, both from g7+ countries and from civil society organizations, working on issues of peacebuilding, statebuilding, conflict and fragility at regional and global levels, around the world.
