Partner countries recovering from violent crises
Partner countries and areas recovering from violent crises are currently Afghanistan, the Palestinian Territories, Sudan, South Sudan and Somalia.
Several of Finland’s partner countries are currently in a state of conflict or are recovering from such a crisis. Support for these countries calls for a comprehensive approach and partnership in which military and civilian crisis management on the one hand and development cooperation and humanitarian assistance on the other are coordinated to achieve the best possible overall effect. The forms taken by development cooperation in societies experiencing a violent crisis must be carefully chosen and different methods must be used at different stages. Post-conflict cooperation must focus specifically on stabilising conditions by supporting the peace process.
In these countries, Finland concentrates mainly on supporting crisis resolution and stabilising conditions. Humanitarian assistance may also be given. In these areas and countries, we work in close cooperation with the EU, other multilateral actors and bilateral donors.
