Executive Summary: 

This practice note presents the possible impacts of political peace processes on post-conflict economic recovery and implications for economic development planning during these transition periods. Peace processes are a development concern because they often set out future political and economic orders that frame post-conflict economic recovery and long-term economic development. Development agencies can be strategic actors for peace processes, especially as these near their conclusion and the parties craft new economic futures. They are also important for the implementation phase and how ex-combatants and local populations experience life after armed conflict.
