Short Description:

Overall goal

With Austrian funding in the past two years three sub-projects of the Global Partnership have been supported which were one publication, communictaions activities and overall coordination. Achievements of the Global Partnership so far include: strengthening of regional networking, establishment of the first global network in the field of conflict prevention and peacebuilding and strengthening of relations with like-minded governments, the UN and Regional Organisations.

The activities so far culminated in the Global Conference which took place in NY in July 2005. The new proposal aims at consolidating the objetives so far achieved and to work on the longer-term perspective of the Global Partnership. The longer-term goal is to achieve a global shift from reaction to prevention of armed conflict. The Global Conference identified needs, an Action Agenda (with 15 Regional Action Agendas) was formulated, networks both regional and global were created and capacities for cooperation developed. The Global Partnership will become a network of peacebuilding organisations and will monitor the implementation of the Action Agenda.

Austria will support the following activities: awareness raising, communication of the Global Partnership and steering and coordination.
