Facing the Challenge of Peace
A shared statement by peacebuilding organisations
The 70th anniversary of the United Nations brings an unprecedented number of major negotiations, reviews and processes that together will frame the work of multilateralism for the next decade and beyond. Next week, the world’s leaders will sign on to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which has identified peaceful, just and inclusive societies as one of five cross-cutting priorities for the international community, and there will be high-level discussions on terrorism, UN peace operations and peacebuilding.
In this briefing published by the World Federation of United Nations Associations, a group of peacebuilding organisations give a joint statement on addressing violent conflict as an essential part of implementing the 2030 Agenda.
Date: September 2015
Leveraged effectively, the 2030 Agenda could help outline a shared approach to addressing and preventing violence at root.
