The International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding is an ongoing series of discussions that engages stakeholders in an open and frank conversation about improving peacebuilding and statebuilding efforts in fragile and conflict-affected situations.
Timor-Leste, along with DFID, co-chairs the International Dialogue on Statebuilding and Peacebuilding.
The first global meeting of the Dialogue was held in Dili, Timor-Leste in April 2010.
Participants of the Dili International Dialogue identified 7 peacebuilding and statebuilding goals as stepping stones to achieving the Millennium Development Goals in conflict-affected and fragile states.
The goals of the Dili Declaration will serve as a foundation for future Dialogue meetings, including the following meeting which was held in Monrovia, Liberia in June 2011.
Participants of the first Dialogue in Dili committed to developing an International Action Plan that will respond to the goals and challenges identified in the Dili Declaration and the Multi-Stakeholder Consultations which were carried out in advance of the meeting.
The plan will be delivered at the 4th High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in South Korea in November 2011.
Multi-Stakeholder consultations were carried out at country or region level in 2009 to 2010 in Burundi, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Southern Sudan and Timor-Leste.
The priority concerns identified in the consultation process were used in the first International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding in Dili, Timor-Leste.
