The Project on Strengthening Resilience Against Violent Extremism in Asia (STRIVE Asia) is a 48- month joint EU-UN initiative. The project supports Member States in the implementation of UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy and its subsequent consensus reviews by the General Assembly (A/RES/70/291 and A/RES/72/284), which invites Member States to develop and implement national plans of action to prevent violent extremism conducive to terrorism.The Programme is a EU-UN partnership that is jointly implemented by the United Nations Office of Counter-Terrorism (UNOCT), the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). It is co-funded by the European Union, and all UN Partners. This is the first year of the four-year programme, which is structured around three main outputs: 

Output 1: Enhancing the capacity of national and local authorities, legislative bodies, civil society and the private sector for PCVE policy-making, in particular, the capacity to develop and implement PVE national action plans; 

Output 2: Enhancing the role of law enforcement actors in preventing violent extremism in close collaboration with non-government actors; and 

Output 3: Strengthening local resilience of at-risk communities through the support of community-led initiatives in the PCVE area.

This Action responds to the spread of violent extremism which poses a significant threat to the international community’s efforts to promote peace and security. The intended impact of STRIVE Asia initiative is to contribute to preventing and countering Violent Extremism in Central, South and Southeast Asia, through a multi-stakeholder approach, including governments, security actors, civil society and private sector entities. It seeks to enhance the roles and capacities of national and local authorities, legislative bodies, civil society and the private sector to develop and implement PCVE action plans and other policy documents based on international standards, good practices and lessons learned, and to strengthen local resilience through community-led PCVE initiatives.
