Welcome to the International Geneva Peacebuilding Guide

The International Geneva Peacebuilding Guide (IGPG) was created in early 2007 with the aim of mapping the peacebuilding capacities and expertise of International Geneva. There are currently over 70 organisations within the Geneva peacebuilding community that are listed in the Guide.

If your organisation is interested in being part of the Guide, please contact the GPP.

This database allows users to search the International Geneva Peacebuilding Guide, and browse the peacebuilding capacities and expertise of Geneva-based organisations. Use these following filters to search in the database.
