Forces for Sustainability

This is the report of the first Peace and Sustainability Session named "Forces for Sustainability", held in the Peace Palace in The Hague in March 2007. The meeting brought together about 70 decision makers, opinion leaders, professionals in peacekeeping operations, environmental scientists, the private sector, juridical experts as well as international and grass root organisations working in areas of armed conflict to find solutions for sustainable development challenges.

Topics that are addressed in the report include: sustainability challenges in areas of armed conflicts; the environment during armed conflict; experiences with sustainability issues in transition phases towards peace; civil-military cooperation; and the roles and responsibilities of communities and the private sector. Situations from Afghanistan, Nepal, the Niger Delta, Papua, Lebanon as well as the African Great Lakes region -amongst others- are used as exemplifying cases.
