Investment, trade and aid can generate significant economic wealth and help support social development, but can also have adverse effects on local communities and economies.

We help businesses, communities and governments ensure that economic development in conflict-affected countries is inclusive and sustainable, so that peace and prosperity go hand in hand.

We advise companies, governments and international institutions on how to enhance the peacebuilding potential of their economic policies, and help local communities to shape and benefit from economic development.
