Toolkit and Guidance for Preventing and Managing Land and Natural Resources Conflict

This comprehensive guide was developed through a partnership between the EU and the UN Framework Team; six UN agencies, programmes
or departments have been involved, including UNDESA, UNDP, UNEP, UN-HABITAT, DPA and PBSO.  The aim of this partnership was to develop and implement a strategic multi-agency project focused on building the capacity of national stakeholders, the UN system, and the EU to prevent land and natural resources from contributing to violent conflict.  The partnership is also designed to enhance policy development and programme coordination between key actors at the level of country offices.

The first outcome of this project is an inventory of existing tools and capacity within the UN system and a set of four Guidance Notes on addressing NRM and conflict prevention. These Guidance Notes cover:  Land and Conflict, Extractive Industries and Conflict, Renewable Resources and Conflict, and Strengthening Capacity for Conflict-Sensitive Natural Resource Management.

For more information, please contact the Framework Team Secretariat at*at*undp*dot*org or Mr. Szilard Fricska from UN-Habitat at Szilard.Fricska*at*unhabitat*dot*org.
