The Program on Conflict and Development 

Researching solutions for a more peaceful world

ConDev seeks to improve the effectiveness of development programs and policies for conflict-affected and fragile countries through multidisciplinary research and education.

ConDev Uses Science & Technology to: 

Reduce Armed Conflict

Sustain Families & Communities During Conflict

Assist States in Rapid Recovery from Conflict

In 2010, the Howard G. Buffett Foundation Chair on Conflict and Development was established at Texas A&M University to support teaching, research, and service for the advancement of the welfare of communities enduring conflict or emerging from conflict. In November 2011, Texas A&M University was selected as a member of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Higher Education Solutions Network.

Based upon an agreement with USAID and the Howard G. Buffett Foundation, research is focused largely on mitigating conflict related to Food Security, Natural Resources, Youth Populations, and Local Institutions. 

ConDev conducts research, education, and development extension guided by four key questions:


Which interventions are required to build upon local conflict coping strategies to incentivize food security and promote resilience?


What investments are required to engage conflict-vulnerable youth populations through workforce development linked to jobs?


How can natural resource management be used as a peace-building approach?


How do legitimate local institutions redirect elite competition and promote coorporation dynamics in conflict-prone regions?
