The Third Global Meeting of the International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding will take place in Washington on 19 April 2013 at the Willard Hotel (1401 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W.) from 2:00 to 6:00 p.m.
The event brings together a group of ministers (mostly finance and international development) from African and OECD countries to discuss the New Deal for Engagement in Fragile States, which was an agreement signed in 2011 meant to change the way fragile countries and their partners work together on peacebuilding. Somalia recently decided to use the New Deal as the framework for its cooperation with donors and the European Union has signed on as the lead donor in Somalia.
