Implementing the New Commitments to Peace

A shared statement by peacebuilding organizations

Dozens of international and domestic peace-building organizations have joined together to release a statement in advance of the International Day of Peace (September 21). The statement calls on the international community and the UN General Assembly to fully embrace the commitments to peace in the 2030 Agenda; balance national efforts with a focus on regional and international drivers of peace, justice and inclusion; mainstream prevention; and protect and support civil society in fostering sustainable peace.
