The Civil Society – UN Prevention Platform
The Civil Society – UN Prevention Platform was created in 2016 against the backdrop of a renewed focus at the UN on prevention and inclusivity, not least the three reviews of UN's peacebuilding architecture, peace operations and work on women, peace and security of 2015 and the 2016 resolutions on sustaining peace (UNSCR 2282).
To contribute to meaningful inclusion of and partnerships with local actors, the the Civil Society – UN Prevention Platform aims to improve the cooperation and coordination on prevention between UN actors across the system and civil society actors in New York and in the field.
Together for a Better Peace
The Together for a Better Peace project aims to spread knowledge about, support and contribute to the work of the UN Peacebuilding Commission (PBC). We do this by monitoring the meetings and activities of the PBC and developments in the countries on its agenda and providing meeting summaries and updates on Betterpeace.org.
At the same time, we advocate for the PBC to increase transparency, effectiveness and inclusiveness of its processes and fully live up to its unique role in assisting countries in their peace efforts to prevent the lapse and relapse into conflict.
