Theme of the Conference:  AGENDA FOR PEACE AND DEVELOPMENT:  Conflict Prevention, Post-Conflict Transformation, and the Conflict, Disaster and Sustainable Development Debate

IPRA’s Ecology and Peace Commission

Profile

IPRA’s Ecology and Peace Commission (EPC) addresses the relationship between the Earth and human systems, and their impacts on peace. A special focus is placed on the linkages between problems of sustainable development and sustainable peace. The EPC evolved from the Food Study Group, which became Ecology and Peace Commission (EPC). In 2004 an Earth Charter Working Group was also set up. Many wars have been related to resource conflicts and therefore the EPC focused on conflict resolution related to sustainable development and processes of sustainable transition toward ecological civilization.

The conveners are elected by the participants during IPRA conferences for a two year period to prepare the publications for the past conference and to prepare the sessions for the next conference. The conveners between the IPRA conferences in Mie (2012) and Istanbul (2014) were:
