By the end of the year, HD had more than 40 projects in progress in over 25 countries, working at the heart of the world’s most dangerous conflicts in Africa, the Middle East, Europe as well as East and Central Asia.

Through its Mediation Support and Policy Programme, HD also continued to promote discussion of emerging challenges across the mediation sector by sharing insights from its experiences.
