Twice the Peace by 2030: Linking Knowledge to Practice

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development made for the first time peaceful, just and inclusive societies a global development priority. For the first time, it addresses peace from a development perspective. Given what we know about how severely violence undermines broader development aims, SDG16.1 in particular has the potential to emerge at the forefront of the agenda. However, urgent action is needed to bend the curve and accelerate the implementation of evidence-based violence reduction and prevention strategies that help those working at the national or local level. This event seeks to showcase early success stories in different countries to strengthen and transform preventative action, presenting the latest research by the International Peace Institute and the Pathfinders for Peaceful, Just, and Inclusive Societies.

Focal Points for the event:
Massoma Rahmaty, International Peace Institute, rahmaty@ipinst.org
Rachel Locke, The Pathfinders for Peaceful, Just and Inclusive Societies, rachel@sdg16.plus

This event is part of Geneva Peace Week, for more information on the full programme to go www.genevapeaceweek.ch/programme.
