Peace and Conflict Prevention

UN

 With the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in September 2015, Member States agreed to a comprehensive and far-reaching set of universal and inter-linked sustainable development goals and targets, with the imperative of leaving no one behind.  The 2030 Agenda provides an integrated framework for action aimed at markedly improving the lives of the world’s people, protecting the Earth’ natural resources, as well as fostering peaceful, just and inclusive societies.

Rising to the challenges of preventing conflict, sustaining peace and achieving sustainable development requires comprehensive and collaborative support from across the entire United Nations system.  To this end, CEB endorsed, in April 2016, a policy statement on UN system support to conflict prevention and peacebuilding within the broader 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.  The statement contains a set of eight commitments, including a pledge to strengthen the capacities of the UN system to identify drivers of conflict, detect early warning signals and respond quickly to imminent threats. It also underscores the importance of carrying out joint, whole-of-system analysis, planning, programming and monitoring, and of securing adequate and predictable resources for preventing conflict and sustaining peace. The text also contains a commitment by the Board to work with Member States in bringing together the various parts of the United Nations system in support of the 2030 Agenda and reaffirmed the commitment of the UN system to support women in conflict prevention and peacebuilding efforts.
