Environmental Peacebuilding Platform launched

The newly launched Environmental Peacebuilding Platform is a joint initiative by the Environmental Law Institute, the United Nations Environment Programme, McGill University and the University of Tokyo with further partners. It reflects the research activities of these institutions over the past five years and documents current progress. The platform hosts a diverse collection of publications and news updates on environmental issues in (post-) conflict settings.


Environmental peacebuilding integrates natural resource management in conflict prevention, mitigation, resolution, and recovery to build resilience in communities affected by conflict. The Platform seeks to provide a way to connect a growing global community of researchers, practitioners, and decision makers in sharing experiences and lessons from managing natural resources in conflict-affected settings, accessing new research on the topic, and participating in events to support the growing network of professionals active in environmental peacebuilding.
