To build sustainable peace and security worldwide.
The Alliance for Peacebuilding (AfP) is a coalition of diverse organizations working together to build sustainable peace and security worldwide.
Members of AfP are directly engaged in applied conflict prevention and resolution. They provide negotiation and mediation services, train negotiators, facilitate communication to break down barriers, and help find solutions to the issues and pressures that otherwise drive groups and nations to achieve their objectives through violent force. Members also conduct research and provide evaluation and education. The role of AfP is to bring these organizations together for collaborative peacebuilding.
Initiate, develop and support collaborative action among governmental, nongovernmental, and intergovernmental organizations to prevent and resolve destructive conflicts.
Build understanding of and support for peacebuilding policies and programs among leaders in government, business, media, philanthropy, religion, and other sectors of civil society.
Increase the effectiveness of the peacebuilding field by developing networks, disseminating best practices, and enhancing organizational capacities and professional skills.
