Peacebuilding


Our work in this thematic area seeks to promote coherent and inclusive peacebuilding policies, strategies and processes.

About


While protracted crises and violent conflicts continue to pose a grave threat to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda and to sustainable peace, millions of people across the globe – from grassroots activists to international policy makers – are working to create more inclusive and peaceful societies and to mitigate obstacles to equitable development.

As the United Nations seeks to strengthen its work to support peace and security, development and human rights, the Secretary-General has emphasised prevention as a priority for the organisation. Addressing the root causes of conflict, including exclusion and inequality, is central to preventing and resolving violent conflicts and sustaining peace, and must involve the entire UN system in partnership with other multilateral actors and civil society.

Our work in this thematic area seeks to promote coherent and inclusive peacebuilding policies, strategies and processes leading to more peaceful, just and resilient societies.
