Together for Peace


"There is no peace without development and growth, and there is no economic growth when there is no peace." To unlock the potential for growth and development for nearly 1/3 of the population, investment in peacebuilding is crucial. Despite the need, there is limited investment in this area. This is a gap Mirabaud understood, and what has now become the heart of the relationship and the journey together with Interpeace for more than 10 years.

Peace processes fail because solutions are imported or imposed. Therefore building lasting sustainable peace means that communities develop resilience - their own capacity to handle the challenges of today and tomorrow.
