Summary

Post-conflict peacebuilding efforts can fail if they do not pay sufficient attention to natural resources. Natural resources?diamonds, oil, and minerals?are frequently at the heart of historic grievances, and have caused or funded at least 18 conflicts since 1990. The same resources can play a central role in post-conflict peacebuilding, providing revenue for cash-starved governments, basic services for collapsed economies, and means for restoring livelihoods.To date, there is a striking gap in knowledge of what works, what does not, and how to improve peacebuilding through more effective and systematic management of natural resources. Peacebuilding and Natural Resources addresses this gap by examining the growing literature on the topic and surveying experiences across more than forty post-conflict countries. The six-volume series includes more than 130 chapters from over 200 researchers, practitioners, and policymakers.Volume 1: High-Value Natural Resources and Post-Conflict Peacebuilding (P+ivi Lujala and Siri Aas Rustad, editors)Volume 2: Land and Post-Conflict Peacebuilding (Jon Unruh and Rhodri Williams, editors)Volume 3: Water and Post-Conflict Peacebuilding (Erika Weinthal, Jessica Troell, and Mikiyasu Nakayama, editors) Volume 4: Livelihoods, Natural Resources, and Post-Conflict Peacebuilding {Helen Young and Lisa Goldman, editors)Volume 5: Assessing and Restoring Natural Resources in Post-Conflict Peacebuilding (David Jensen and Steven Lonergan, editors)Volume 6: Governance, Natural Resources, and Post-Conflict Peacebuilding (Carl Bruch, Wm.
