“By extension, Environmental Peacebuilding, which is your core area, tends to examine and advocate environmental protection and cooperation as a factor in creating more peaceful relations. This has helped immensely to curb spillover effects.

It includes all forms of cooperation on environmental issues/development between distinct social groups, which is aimed at achieving and creating less violent and more peaceful relations among these groups.
