The project is a joint effort of ELI, the UN Environment Programme, and the University of Tokyo. It examines the role that effective natural resource management plays in assisting in processes for disarmament, demobilization, and reintegration (DDR) of former combatants; reintegrating refugees and displaced persons; meeting basic human needs for people in post-conflict societies, including food, water, shelter, and livelihoods; addressing grievances that may have contributed to the conflict (such as access to land); and providing opportunities to build confidence among former combatants. The project compiles lessons learned from more than 200 authors into six edited volumes of case studies and thematic analyses.
