Recent increases in violent conflict are putting longer-term advances in global peace at risk, driving humanitarian crises, mass displacement and chronic underdevelopment. Various tools already exist for the international community to respond to these interlinked challenges. However, with peace at the heart of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, there is now a universally agreed vision to prevent conflict, address its root causes, and make peace sustainable in every country.
This short briefing highlights what Saferworld sees as some of the key targets for peace. It also outlines key steps – to be made by a range of actors – towards national implementation and demonstrates how collective action at the global level can help enable this. - Thomas Wheeler,Anna Moller-Loswick, Sunil Suri, Larry Attree
