IDPS Co-Chairs H.E. Minister Kai-Kai and H.E Minister Sajjan as well as UNDP Administrator Achim Steiner and other dignitaries provided keynote addresses at IDPS’ high-level luncheon on 20 September 2022, marking an important opportunity to advocate for the peacebuilding and statebuilding agenda in the context of the new peace and security landscape.
IDPS launched its new vision for 2022-2024, marking the beginning of a new phase for the platform. The launch was hosted by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), which has assumed the Secretariat of the Dialogue until 2024 and brought together the IDPS constituency along with key peacebuilding and statebuilding partners.

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 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.
