UN-EU Partnership on Natural Resources, Conflict and Peacebuilding
22 November 2010
Together with the European Union and five other UN partners ? UNDP, DPA, UNEP, PBSO, HABITAT and DESA ? UNEP is working to support countries improve natural resource management for conflict prevention and peacebuilding. Through a joint programme coordinated by the UN Framework Team for Preventive Action and financed by the EU's Instrument for Stability, technical assistance will be provided to help national stakeholders, as well as UN and EU staff in conflict-affected countries, to better understand and prevent tensions over environmental issues and the management of natural resources. The partnership is also designed to enhance policy development and programme coordination between key actors at the field level.
