At the end of every civil conflict the international community, through its agencies and other non-state actors, always provide aid to war-torn countries for reconstructing their communities. This in many cases involves rebuilding infrastructure and restoring the affected communities. One of the most fundamental intervention aspects is a disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration (DDR) programme. DDR resides in the nexus of development and security agendas and has emerged as a critical development tool kit as well as preventive intervention instrument for sustainable peace and has become a core component of peace agreements. Experience has shown that there is a close relationship between the successful DDR of former combatants and the sustainability of the peacebuilding process. The Brahimi Report referred to DDR as a key ingredient for post-war stability and for reducing the likelihood of recurring conflict. DDR is seen as having the potential to create significant opportunities for sustainable peace and human development.
