Urban safety and peacebuilding

Technical Working Group on the Confluence of Urban Safety and Peacebuilding Practice

The Technical Working Group brings together focal points on urban safety with practitioners from the community of peacebuilding, peace mediation and conflict prevention in order to help craft solutions to the rapidly increasing risk of conflict and insecurity in urban settings.

In an initial phase until the end of 2016, the objectives of the Technical Working Group were to network urban safety and peacebuilding practitioners, to expand the evidence base of practice at the nexus of urban safety and peacebuilding, and to develop an integrated approach on urban safety and peacebuilding. By achieving these objectives, the Technical Working Group contributed to major agenda-setting processes, including the HABITAT III summit in October 2016.

The Technical Working Group is co-facilitated by the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG), UN-Habitat’s Safer Cities Programme and the Geneva Peacebuilding Platform. The Technical Working Group also works in the context of the progress on city initiatives within the Global Network of Safer Cities (GNSC).
