Peace, illicit drugs and the SDGs: a development gap
11 July 2019│6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Policy paper launch and panel discussion, followed by a drinks reception.
The United Nations created the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with the aim of providing for a better and more sustainable future for all. Yet they are barely touching the places where peacebuilding challenges are most urgent – the margins and the borderlands where violence, fragility and displacement are rife. Millions of people in these regions live in poverty and lack access to the bare essentials. Often they turn to illicit drug economies which, under certain conditions, can provide them with an income, employment and protection amid violence, insecurity and poverty.
Join us for the launch of the Christian Aid policy paper Peace, illicit economies and the SDGs: A development gap, followed by an expert panel discussion.
