ABOUT THE AUTHORS: “The Inter-Agency Framework for Coordination on Preventive Action (or Framework Team) — a forum of 22 agencies and departments connected informally at UN Headquarters and in the field—works closely with its member departments and agencies to assist UN Resident Coordinators (in most countries the most senior UN official on the ground) and UN Country Teams in developing integrated conflict prevention strategies, and identifying the political and technical resources required for their implementation. The Framework Team also supports a UN system-wide ‘community of practice’ to improve and expand knowledge and skills in conflict prevention.”
