Posted Oct 29, 2019 | Brookings Institution, Paul Bisca

For development agencies, rising insecurity in fragile states poses a major problem because their institutional tolerance for security risks has been low. Paul Bisca discusses in this article for the Brookings Institution how geospatial mapping tools customised for peacekeepers would allow them to share data on violence and insecurity with development experts. He suggests that data collection efforts could identify the number, type, and intensity of violent incidents in conflict hotspots, help security and development actors achieve their goals and to navigate complex and fragile environments.
