15 Jul 2019 -  With H.E. Ms. Amina J. Mohammed United Nations Deputy Secretary-General.

Organized on the sidelines of the 2019 High-Level Political Forum (HLPF), the Joint Programme partner event will bring together the UN and Member States with an interest in enhancing national prevention capacities. The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, as well as the General Assembly and Security Council resolutions on sustaining peace, demonstrate strong intergovernmental support for an integrated approach to prevention. The Joint Programme mainly contributes to the achievement of SDG 16 (peace, justice and strong institutions) which is one of the goals under review during this HLPF.

The purpose of the partner event is to raise awareness of the Joint Programme, mobilize support for it, and explore opportunities to deepen partnerships between Member States and the Joint Programme. The event will gather national stakeholders involved in peace and development, senior UN representatives and Member States to highlight the innovative work of the Programme on conflict prevention and SDG 16.
