COVID-19 and local peacebuilding

Date:

As the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic grows, our focus remains on how we can continue to support communities breaking through cycles of violent conflict. 

Recently, we convened more than 450 peacebuilders from around the world in online consultations to discuss how the current COVID-19 crisis is impacting their work, changing their needs, and shaping their perspective.
