Why peacebuilding?

Peacebuilding is about addressing the underlying causes of conflict. It helps people to resolve their differences without resorting to violence.

Wars are complex. They cannot be resolved overnight. However, with patience, creativity and dialogue it is possible to transform conflicting societies into more peaceful ones. We play a role in making this happen.

Our approach to peacebuilding

We build partnerships, to build peace.

What is peacebuilding?

Peacebuilding seeks to address the underlying causes of conflict, helping people to resolve their differences peacefully and lay the foundations to prevent future violence.

How we make a difference

With our courageous partners, and the vital support of our donors, we are helping people living with conflict to reduce and prevent violence in their communities. And we are guiding countries that have suffered decades of war, on to the path to peace.
