Collaboration, Adaptation and Innovation for Better Peacebuilding: Using Lessons from the Smart Peace Programme to Inform Wider Peacebuilding Efforts

During this interactive session we will explore these challenges and lessons, and ask audience members to bring their own experiences of what works, and what doesn’t, when it comes to innovative peacebuilding.

The panellists bring varied experiences of peacebuilding across Myanmar, Nigeria and Central African Republic, and together represent both practitioner and evaluation perspectives on peacebuilding.
Panellists will also share key lessons, including from adaptation to COVID-19, and discuss how these can be used to implement peace strategies with greater confidence, inform future funding decisions and further strengthen international cooperation.
Smart Peace is a collaboration of organisations with global expertise in conflict analysis and research, peacebuilding and mediation programming, and behavioural science and evaluation, working to address the changing complexities of peacebuilding. This live session will present emerging evidence from the Smart Peace programme on how to foster collaboration, innovation and adaptation in peacebuilding programming, including steps taken during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are organising this event as a partner organisation to Geneva Peace Week 2020, in collaboration with Chatham House and the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue.

The Smart Peace consortium also includes the Behavioural Insights Team, ETH Zurich, International Crisis Group and The Asia Foundation.
