International Alert; Improving Peacebuilding Practice


International Alert (Alert), which is one of the world's leading peacebuilding organisations, focuses on bridging the gap between polycy and practice and how it translates into peace on the ground. Alert does this by focusing on issues which influence peace, including governance, economics, gender relations, social development, climate change, and the role of businesses and international organisations in high-risk places. Alert works in Africa, South and Southeast Asia, Central Asia, the South Caucasus, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East with 16 offices around the world. Alert believes peace is possible when people can live in safety, have fair and effective laws, participate in shaping political decisions, make a decent living and secure their wellbeing. Alert's work relies on core funding because of our focus on innovation in finding new tools that promote peace and understanding how conflicts can be resolved without violence. Project title: Improving Peacebuilding Practice Goals: Expand Alert's knowledge and understanding of the relationship between fragile and conflict-affected countries and international institutions with the purpose to improve the implementation of the New Deal and the post-2015 agenda; and Strengthen the prospects for peace in at least six fragile and conflict-affected countries in the key thematic areas of economy, climate change, gender and state-citizen relationships. Objectives feed directly in to the delivery of the Finland Development policy objectives, specifically around the theme of strengthening democracies and peacebuilding.
