a catalyst for action

We are a standard-setting organisation

We unite 120+ organisations to promote a unity of vision for
peacemaking at global, regional and local levels.

Focusing on Effectiveness, System Change, and Accompaniment,
we are committed to monitoring progress, supplying necessary
tools, and ensuring the alignment of local and international efforts, all
while promoting accountable and sustainable peace.

We unite stakeholders

from diplomacy, politics, security, and development to foster equitable partnerships and bridge the gap between theory and practice in peace-building.

We provide principles and standards

and an independent measurement and feedback mechanism to aid decision-makers in assessing and refining their peace strategies.

We support peace-building

by collaboratively convening partners, co-producing vital knowledge through diagnostic tools and consultations, and using practical tools and strategies informed by local insights to support country-level peacebuilding.

A ViSION FOR LASTING PEACE

We provide a framework for action and a benchmark for progress.

We also provide a suite of tools, diagnostics, and expert-guided strategies.

We promote coherence, transparency, and accountability in all peace efforts.

Our commitment is to:

Shift the focus

Transition from just ending violence to fostering inclusive, enduring, legitimate processes and accountable security. 

Reinvent partnerships

Facilitate genuine partnerships with more humility, valuing locally led solutions over superficial collaborations, less peace architects and more midwives of peace.

Transform dynamics

Move beyond mere elite power-sharing to reshape state-society relations

Harness the principles for peace

Accompany stakeholders to tap into platforms and alliances for dialogue and course correction, assess progress against shared metrics, and navigate peacebuilding’s intricacies.

Move from policy to funding

Use our diagnostics and feedback loop to ensure accountability, monitoring, and collective action. They encapsulate accountability to taxpayers and affected communities, and effective measurements.
