Breakfast Roundtable: The Pillars of Positive Peace
7 May @ 8:00 am - 11:30 am
WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND THE PILLARS OF POSITIVE PEACE?
Business is good for peace, peace is good for business.
Over the last decade, countries that have made the biggest improvements in peacefulness recorded GDP per capita growth seven times higher than countries that have deteriorated the most.
Low peace countries making significant improvements in Positive Peace are predicted to have the strongest economic returns. Such as many of those where AAMEG member organizations work and operate.
A Sound Business Environment is one of the eight key pillars of Positive Peace. At the same time, improvements in Positive Peace have been found to be a necessary condition for reductions in violence and political instability.
To date, through this M & E, we have seen dramatic changes in attitudes. Particularly around the role of business and sound business environment. As well as innovative community driven projects involving cross-collaborations with other stakeholders to implement shared-value peace projects.
