Description
The Secretary-General’s Chef de Cabinet, Edmond Mulet, stressed that to sustain peace, we need to address the root causes of conflict - not merely its symptoms. He highlighted his experience in Haiti and noted that Community Violence Reduction programmes can transform lives and communities to create advocates for peace. CVR offers a people-centered approach to engaging armed group members, spoilers and at-risk youth at the grassroots level, he said.

Highlighting successful experiences in the Central African Republic and Mali, the Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations, Hervé Ladsous also noted that CVR is a watershed example of peacekeeping learning to adapt and innovate.

The Assistant Secretary-General for the Rule of Law and Security Institutions in the Department of Peacekeeping Operations, Dmitry Titov, added that this tool has proven to be highly adaptable for stabilizing communities in a variety of environments, including in some of the most non-permissive ones.
