    • The USAID Bureau for Conflict Prevention & Stabilization (CPS), the USAID Peace & Security Sector Council, in partnership with ConnexUs, held the USAID Peace & Security Summit Partners Day, a fully digital event on March 31, 2022. Partners Day convened USAID global staff, implementing partners, multilateral organizations, donors & interagency partners.  We hope you enjoyed exchanging ideas, knowledge & learning to prevent armed conflict & violence better & promote peace.

      Following the Summit, you can use the ConnexUs Discussions to share your latest research findings, ask questions about the sessions, identify opportunities for future collaboration, and more! Through ConnexUs’ partnership with USAID, the Partners Day conversations continue on the platform.
