Conflict Mapping in KP
Short summary of Project
During early 21 century, the rise of radicalization and violent extremism, especially amongst the youth, felt one of the most pressing threats to peace, stability and development in Pakistan. In this view, the UNDP's Youth and Social Cohesion project was also marked to address the need to improve data and analysis on conflict and radicalization, while enabling conflict-prone communities to engage at-risk youths. The project worked with communities in selected conflict-prone districts of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa to strengthen youth participation and engagement in decision-making and providing facilities for community activities and services targeting youths.
The Youth and Social Cohesion project engaged APEX Consulting Pakistan to conduct Conflict Mapping in four districts (D.I. Khan, Tank, Lakki Marwat and Karak) of Southern KP. The services provided by the firms included development of conflict framework, research design, quantitative and qualitative data collection, data analysis and conflict mapping report.
