Through a range of tools and publications – including our monthly CrisisWatch conflict tracker – and targeted engagement at the local, regional and global levels, we strive to alert the policy community on upcoming risks and potential opportunities for conflict resolution in some 70 conflicts, crises and vulnerable countries.
