The podcast will allow UNDP to showcase perspectives and conclusions from fresh research on the role of multi-level governance in sustaining peace in fragile and conflict-affected settings, bringing together selected experts in the field.
The discussion will emphasize definitions, demands and tools for strengthening multi-level governance in fragile and conflict-affected settings. In line with the overall theme, this will address challenges at different levels of governance from the global to the local. The podcast will highlight the potential of multi-level governance to strengthen people-centered recovery that addresses grievances, including those at the heart of conflict. The purpose is to demonstrate approaches and tools that hold potential to enhance legitimacy and trust in State-society relations, ultimately contributing to peacebuilding and increased stability.
Specifically, the podcast will share the lessons learnt from a review of multi-level governance in different country settings, conducted by UNDP and University of Melbourne researchers.
The podcast will also showcase UNDP’s new hands-on multi-level governance toolkit (forthcoming, 2023), developed by UNDP and the German Social Innovation Agency Minds & Makers, which is inspired by design thinking principles and targets peacebuilding and development practitioners engaged in country-level programming.
These new products will be complemented by perspectives from other partners as well as lessons from multi-level governance programming in fragile and crisis-affected countries.
Listeners are encouraged to reflect on and respond to questions arising from the podcast and engage in a discussion with other listeners. Please share your thoughts, ideas and questions on UNDP’s discussion page!
Some questions you might want to reflect on are:
- What are your suggestions for making multi-level governance more effective?
- Do you have any examples where multi-level governance contributed to crisis management, peacebuilding and recovery?
- How do governance institutions at different levels collaborate with each other in your country?
