About the product

Far from the widespread hope for peace and harmony at the end of the Cold War, over one hundred armed conflicts have taken place since 1989 in sub-Saharan Africa. The present report contains the main findings and recommendations of the seventh session of the Committee for Development Policy. The Committee addressed the ways to achieve the internationally agreed development goals; reconstruction, development and sustainable peace in post-conflict countries; and improvements in the criteria for the identification of the least developed countries.
