By World Bank. Conflict, crime and violence can be major obstacles to development. While much is known about how to address these issues and their impacts, much also remains to be learned. The Conflict, Crime and Violence (CCV) cluster in the Social Development Department seeks to gather and disseminate what is known as well as develop new ideas and approaches to pragmatically and effectively address these issues within a development context.
The CCV will contribute to the World Bank’s mission of reducing poverty and improving economic growth by promoting an improved understanding of the role of CCV within the development context and promoting effective, practical strategies to reduce and prevent CCV through the World Bank’s work.
