The "New Horizons at the Nexus of Conflict, Natural Resources, and Health" meeting series will present a multi-faceted picture of the links between conflict, natural resources, and human health by drawing from the experiences of a broad range of participants, including field practitioners, policymakers, donors, academics, the private sector, and local community stakeholders. Discussions will focus on practical approaches that can be used to design and implement programs. This series is funded jointly by USAID's Office of Natural Resources Management, its Office of Population and Reproductive Health, and its Office of Conflict Management and Mitigation, with technical support from USAID's Asia, Middle East, and Africa bureaus.
