Resources and Conflicts

Conflicts involving natural resources such as land, water and forests are increasing all over the world as a result of growing demand, population growth and environmental degradation. For well over ten years, adelphi has been researching resource conflicts and offering consultancy services to international organisations, governments and organisations involved in international development and assisting them in developing policies, strategies and programmes. Further to this, we also help in the translation of experiences derived from Peace and Conflict Studies into ideas and approaches that can be implemented in natural resource management. Additionally, we train professionals and NGO workers in the field of resource management to use conflict-sensitive approaches and to develop programmes that handle environmental and peace development as early as the initial stages in an integrated manner.
