Sustainable water resources management is a major global challenge of the 21st century. At the same time water can become a theme for collaboration and can be transformed from a source of potential crisis into an instrument of peace.
Based on the idea that managing water resources around the world fairly and efficiently can help to achieve sustainable peace, the Blue Peace initiative was launched in 2010. Blue Peace gathers different actors (academia, culture, political and diplomatic actions, civil society and the private sector) and at different levels (from local to global), to highlights initiatives on water, peace, security and cooperation.
