How does Peacebuilding Connect to Other Sectors?

Increasingly, peacebuilding organizations are collaborating with other sectors to ensure the greatest positive impact through aid programming. In many cases, we are working to address the same problem but from a different perspective. The thematic action areas on ConnexUs effectively demonstrate the cross-sectoral nature of peacebuilding & its integration with other fields. We encourage you to explore other themes to find partnership & collaboration opportunities across sectors.
