Sudan: Environmental Governance for Peacebuilding in Darfur

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) published in June 2014 a report titled "Relationships and Resources: Environmental Governance for Peacebuilding and Resilient Livelihoods in Sudan." 

The report argues that achieving peace in Darfur requires an approach that includes both technical work to restore degraded natural resources and one that rebuilds new forms of environmental governance and political work capable of establishing a shared vision, resolving conflicts, and advancing new forms of governance.  The report describes practical experiences undertaken by UNEP and numerous  partners in government and civil society between 2007 and 2014 to support Darfur's own efforts to develop new inclusive and participatory approaches to environmental governance.  It focuses on the process by which governance and peacebuilding may be promoted using natural resources as the basis for rebuilding key relationships and trust.
