BACKGROUND
Globally there has been a rising risk of Violent Extremism (VE), which has a direct negative impact on peace, security and sustainable development. In 2016 the UN Secretary General presented a Plan of Action to Prevent Violent Extremism to the UN General Assembly that provides a framework to tackle violent extremism through preventive measures addressing the drivers. The Plan calls for national and regional Prevention of Violent Extremism (PVE) action plans and encourages member states to align their development policies with the Sustainable Development Goals, many of which are critical to addressing global drivers of violent extremism and enhancing community resilience. In particular, Goal 16 on the promotion of peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development. In support of this developmental approach, UNDP is implementing a project, “Preventing and Responding to Violent Extremism in Tanzania”, whose main objective is to support a preventive and developmental national effort for preventing and responding to violent extremism.
