Peace and Development

In today's world, people's survival, livelihoods, and dignity are threatened by a variety of crises, including armed conflicts, large-scale natural disasters, outbreaks of infectious diseases, and transnational crimes. Underlying these are many root causes, including poverty, discrimination, inequality, and climate change, which compel international community to think and act in innovative and dynamic manner. From the perspective of realizing human security in the face of imminent threats and ever increasing humanitarian needs, JICA-RI attempts to analyze the factors behind these crises in a more systematic way and explores more effective approaches to address them through comparative analyses of initiatives taken by a diverse range of actors.
