Post-conflict peacebuilding and natural resources.
the aftermath of conflict, one of the few assets held by post-conflict countries are natural resources. How governments use these assets can fundamentally alter the course of peacebuilding and recovery. The challenge lies in converting the revenues derived from natural resource extraction into livelihoods, jobs, infrastructure, and the basic services needed to consolidate and sustain peace. Effective and equitable management of natural resources has the potential to transform post-conflict countries by providing tangible peace dividends that can propel the peace process forward while also kick-starting economic growth.
