The Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict (GPPAC) consists of hundreds of civil society organisations from around the world. What unites is the drive and dedication to prevent violence everywhere. Together, we seek a world where violence and armed conflicts are prevented and resolved by peaceful means based on justice, gender equity, sustainable development, and human security for all. GPPAC brings together civil society with relevant local, national, regional and international actors and institutions to collectively contribute to a fundamental change in dealing with violence and armed conflict: a shift from reaction to prevention.
