A Guide to Economic Growth in Post-Conflict Countries

2009 — By United States Agency for International Development

This Guide to Economic Growth in Post-Conflict Countries seeks to develop comprehensive recommendations for USAID and similar donors on how to encourage economic growth in countries emerging from conflict. The Guide is based on the premise that improved economic wellbeing can enhance the prospects for sustaining peace and reduce the high percentage of post-conflict countries that return to violence.

The Guide is based on staff research and workshops organized by the Economic Growth Office of USAID’s Economic Growth, Agriculture and
Trade (EGAT) Bureau during 2007-2008, augmented with input from other USAID and field implementers, staff of other United States Government (including the Department of Defense), the World Bank and International Finance Corporation, and several bilateral donors and think tanks.
