Peace and development are dependent on the ability to resolve conflicts constructively and without resorting to violence. This is precisely where the German Federal Government’s peace efforts come into play: to prevent violence as a means of resolving conflicts, to reduce fragility as a breeding ground for violence, and to create opportunities for long-term development. The Federal Government recognises the reciprocal effects between peace and development as most recently stipulated by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Respect for and protection and fullfilling of human rights, social and political participation, gender equality, social cohesion, and the rule of law are of key importance in this regard.
The German government produced this toolkit to support its efforts in implementing a new strategy towards Security Sector Reform and Sustainable Peace.
