In post-conflict societies, reconstruction efforts must focus on rebuilding and strengthening institutions in addition to providing humanitarian aid and basic infrastructure. The private sector plays a crucial role in advancing reconstruction and establishing credible institutions that give post-conflict societies a sense of ownership and faith in the political and economic system and discourage the return of armed conflict. Institutional and economic reforms must be carried out at the grassroots level in order to cultivate a sense of responsibility within local communities and to engage the local private sector and civil society in meeting specific development needs of post-conflict countries.
