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 400 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. 

Our latest report, produced in collaboration with Conducive Space for Peace and Humanity United, shares the key findings from the consultations, as well as recommendations from peacebuilders from around the world.

In a time that requires transformative thinking, we hope this offers a helpful ground level perspective.

‘COVID-19 and the impact of local peacebuilding’ is now available in three languages.
