    The project ‘Water for Peace in Yemen: Strengthening the role of women in water conflict resolution’ was funded by the United Nations Secretary-General's Peacebuilding Fund (PBF). The project was implemented jointly by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the International Organization for Migration (IOM), the Hadramout Ministry of Water and Environment, and the Women Water Users Groups (WWUG). The ‘Water for Peace in Yemen’ project aimed at contributing to the mitigation of water-based conflicts that have affected agriculture, with the inclusion of women as conflict-resolution agents. Farming communities (men, women and youth) were engaged by the project to resolve local conflicts over upstream and downstream water allocation. Moreover, the project aimed to introduce drought-tolerant as well as salt-tolerant crops as a climate change mitigation measure in a cash-for-work (CFW) modality. The evaluation found that the project's main achievements were the institutionalization of this role through the water user associations (WUAs) and strengthening the role of women within their communities.

    Violent conflict has increased in recent decades. The number of people worldwide who live in settings where conflict and violence are a daily occurrence is increasing. By 2030, it is estimated that more than half of all people living in poverty will be found in countries affected by high levels of violence. These conflict dynamics have a negative impact on households’ food security. Agriculture, natural resources, food security and nutrition can be sources of peace or conflict, crisis or recovery, tragedy or healing. Underpinning this is ensuring that the Organization’s projects and interventions are conflict-sensitive so that all stakeholders understand the dynamics of the diverse contexts in which FAO works. Especially in fragile and conflict-affected contexts, we need to make sure that our work avoids contributing to divisions, disputes and violent conflict, and does no harm. All that we do – both by ourselves and through partnerships – should follow this approach. We can also identify where FAO can positively contribute to social cohesion and peace – and these efforts must be rooted in robust theories of change. FAO is placing increasing emphasis on ensuring that our interventions make a positive contribution to peace – an objective shared across the United Nations system, and increasingly a requirement of our partners and donors. The focus of this how-to guide is to elaborate the pathways through which the Organization can optimize deliberate contributions to peace, and inform the design, adaptation and impact measurement of its interventions. In recent years, FAO has developed corporate tools, guidance and training on conflict sensitivity and context analysis. Operationalizing pathways to sustaining peace in the context of Agenda 2030 – A how-to guide is another crucial document in that series, developed through collaboration between the FAO Conflict and Peace Unit and Interpeace in the context of a wider partnership between the two Organizations. Following broad consultation across the Organization, this document provides operational guidance and inspiration to FAO project and technical staff on how our work can enhance FAO’s contributions to peace – and how to measure those contributions. It is part of an ongoing process, which complements FAO’s efforts through its Strategic Framework to support the transformation to more efficient, inclusive, resilient and sustainable agrifood systems, for better production, better nutrition, better environment and better life, leaving no one behind.

    FAO's contribution to sustaining peace
    Corporate Framework to support sustainable peace in the context of Agenda 2030
    2018
    Also available in:

    Since its founding in 1945, FAO's core work supporting food security, nutrition, poverty reduction and sustainable agriculture has helped to reduce the economic, political, social and environmental drivers of conflict. Through its work, FAO fosters social cohesion, generates peace dividends, reduces conflict drivers and builds the legitimacy and capacity of governments. Following the UN Secretary-General's prioritization of sustaining peace across the UN system and given the recent (May 2018) UN Security Council resolution explicitly recognizing the link between conflict and hunger, the brochure summarizes FAO's main contribution to sustaining peace through the Corporate Framework to support sustainable peace in the context of Agenda 2030.
