This strategy paper by the United Kingdom Department for International Development (DFID) outlines how DFID, through its commitment to fighting poverty, can help tackle insecurity among the poor. It explains the complex connections between security and development and sets out how DFID can build security by working with poor people, their governments and international partners. Fighting poverty and preventing conflict play a unique role in reducing vulnerability and inequality around the world, thus contributing to everyone’s security, rich and poor.
