UN-EU Partnership on Natural Resources, Conflict and Peacebuilding

The linkages between natural resources and violent conflict are a critical challenge faced by many countries today. The exploitation of high-value natural resources, including oil, gas, minerals and timber, for example, has often been cited as a key factor in triggering, escalating or sustaining wars around the globe. Furthermore, increasing competition for diminishing renewable resources, such as land and water, is on the rise, compounded by environmental degradation, population growth and climate change. If they are well managed, however, natural resources can also serve to prevent conflicts or shore up efforts toward peace and sustainable development in war-torn nations.
