Peacebuilding & Urbanization
Around the world, we see increased & accelerating urbanization. 55% of the world’s population lives in urban areas. By 2050, this number is expected to reach 68%. Urban areas are especially vulnerable to conflict dynamics. They are also well-positioned to prevent violence & foster social cohesion beyond the urban areas themselves. This Thematic Action Area is a collection of discussions, resources, events & more that provide knowledge & coordination opportunities around peacebuilding & urbanization.
