What distinguishes post-conflict PSD from PSD in other situations? How is PSD best carried out in conflict-affected environments? The Review seeks to answer these questions. It also offers practical advice for making PSD interventions sensitive and responsive to conflict, for example through the use of conflict assessment tools and by engaging with a wider range of stakeholders. An additional section considers how results measurement might be adjusted to fit the needs of post-conflict PSD programmes.
