Innovative Finance for Sustainable Peace Initiative

Sustainable peace can be achieved, but it requires all hands on deck. In 2015 alone, the economic impact of violence to the global economy was $13.6 trillion, the equivalent of $5 per day for every person on the planet, or 11 times the size of global foreign direct investment.

To prevent conflict and achieve sustainable peace, we must...

Shift the focus from ending war to building peace

Transition from spending on relief efforts to investing in resilient communities that reduce the core risk of conflict

Evolve from relying solely on political institutions for answers today to empowering everyone to be a part of the solution for a better world

Innovative finance is a tool that can harness the power of financial markets to drive these necessary transformations and advance the global peacebuilding agenda

Support the Innovative Finance for Sustainable Peace Initiative to put down our weapons and pick up this tool for a peaceful future.
