An 18-month collective process led by the Geneva Peacebuilding Platform, IUCN and PeaceNexus, culminates on 1 February 2022 to launch a policy paper & 50-entry compendium with a vision for the field.

The White Paper is a policy-oriented document, to be developed through a reflective, consultative, multi-stakeholder process. It aims to deliver a strong, cogent message about the future of the field to the Stockholm+50 forum in June 2022. This project was developed not only to advance a policy agenda for environmental peacebuilding, but also to foster inter-institutional collaboration and shared innovation for the field. It was intentionally designed as a highly collaborative project, inviting institutions to work together to develop submissions, and creating space for field-wide reflection on drafts at each step of the process.

The final product consists of two major written components, the first of which is a 32 page White Paper on the Future of Environmental Peacebuilding that is translated into multiple languages. This paper is a policy-oriented document, drawn and crafted out of the contributions to the compendium. The second part is a compendium featuring 50 contributions from nearly 150 authors spanning different regions, perspectives, themes, and topics.

The White Paper and Compendium are available for donwload in English, Spanish and French on the offical website.

The full project will be available and launched on 1 February 2022 at the Second International Conference for Environmental Peacebuilding online.
