The United Nations and its Member States face an array of complex and interrelated challenges to global peace. While the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development pledges to “leave no one behind”, the goals of peaceful coexistence and development are at risk in many countries. 

The concept of Sustaining Peace, emerging from UN General Assembly and UN Security Council “twin-resolutions”, marks a renewal of the UN’s commitment to the goal of preventing and resolving violent conflicts. It also calls for a shift from silo-driven responses to new innovative ways of achieving collective and cumulative impact attaining to reach sustainable peace.

This 5-week online course has been developed to introduce practitioners to the key elements of the Sustaining Peace resolutions, providing them with a solid grounding on its application across the humanitarian-development-peace nexus.
