34-year-old taxi driver Omar Musa, was amongst 40,000 Libyans who, together with his family, had to flee from the city of Tawergha after the 2011 revolution in Libya. People were living in dire conditions in camps spread across the country. Seven years later, Omar was finally able to return home. “When I arrived I was not aware of the danger that I faced. However, I found billboards and posters on the walls near the entrance of the city with emergency phone numbers to report any explosive remnants of war. I did not really understand what that meant at the time." Indeed, in such situations, the EU supports projects to raise awareness about unexploded ordnances and mines, and to help clear people’s properties so that they can return safely home.

For the past 10 years the EU has successfully deployed a CSDP military naval operation to fight piracy off the coast of Somalia. Today the threat of piracy has been minimised. At the same time the operation was tasked with monitoring fishing activity and reporting any illegal activity. Improved security conditions now allow communities to engage in fishing activities supported by EU and UN missions and initiatives.

The European Union has started as a peace project and has successfully transformed a war-torn and conflict-prone continent into a global actor in peacebuilding and conflict resolution. The European Union promotes peace across the globe by addressing the root causes of conflict, contributing to creating the necessary conditions for the reconstruction of societies and supporting the recovery of affected civilians. The International Day of Peace reminds us that peace is not a given. Three projects in Ukraine, the Philippines and Niger show how local actors, with the support from the international community, can build peace.

La Unión Europea comenzó siendo un proyecto de paz y ha transformado con éxito un continente devastado por las guerras y proclive al conflicto en un actor mundial en materia de consolidación de la paz y resolución de conflictos. La Unión Europea promueve la paz en todo el planeta abordando las causas profundas de los conflictos, contribuyendo a crear las condiciones necesarias para la reconstrucción de las sociedades y apoyando la recuperación de los civiles afectados. El Día Internacional de la Paz nos recuerda que la paz no es algo definitivo. Tres proyectos en Ucrania, Filipinas y Níger muestran cómo los agentes locales, con el apoyo de la comunidad internacional, pueden consolidar la paz.

Fondée sur un projet de paix, l'Union européenne est parvenue à transformer un continent déchiré par la guerre et exposé aux tensions en un acteur mondial de la consolidation de la paix et de la résolution des conflits. L’UE défend la paix dans le monde en s’attaquant aux causes profondes des conflits et contribue ainsi à créer les conditions nécessaires à la reconstruction des sociétés et des populations civiles touchées. La Journée internationale de la paix rappelle que la paix n’est jamais définitivement acquise. Trois projets en Ukraine, aux Philippines et au Niger montrent comment les acteurs locaux, avec l'aide de la communauté internationale, peuvent œuvrer pour la paix.

A União Europeia, que começou como um projeto de paz, conseguiu transformar um continente devastado pela guerra e propenso a confrontos num agente da consolidação da paz e da resolução de conflitos à escala mundial. A União Europeia promove a paz em todo o mundo, tendo em conta as causas profundas dos conflitos, contribuindo para criar as condições necessárias para a reconstrução das sociedades e apoiando a recuperação das populações civis afetadas. O Dia Internacional da Paz recorda-nos que a paz não é um dado adquirido. Três projetos na Ucrânia, nas Filipinas e no Níger são exemplos de como os intervenientes locais, com o apoio da comunidade internacional, podem obrar em favor da paz.

Европейский Союз начинался как проект для укрепления мира. С его помощью, раздираемый войной и конфликтами континент превратился в мирового лидера движения за мир и разрешения конфликтов. Европейский Союз занимается программой укрепления мира на планете, работая с глубинными причинами конфликтов, помогая создавать необходимые условия для реконструкции сообществ и поддержке пострадавших гражданских лиц. Международный день мира призван напомнить нам, что мир это не данность. Три проекта: в Украине, на Филиппинах и в Нигере ‒ показывают, как местные заинтересованные лица, при поддержке мирового сообщества, могут построить мир.

Natural resources belong to local communities not to militias. Since 2003, the EU and international partners representing 99% of the world’s diamond trade have joined forces to make sure that the production and trade of rough diamond contributes to peace and sustainable economic and human development. Through the Chairmanship this year, and a number of concrete projects, the EU is committed to prevent the trade in conflict diamonds and improve mining communities’ livelihoods.

Les ressources naturelles appartiennent aux populations locales, et non aux milices. Depuis 2003, l’UE et des partenaires internationaux représentant 99 % du commerce mondial de diamants ont uni leurs forces pour que la production et le commerce de diamants bruts contribuent à la paix et à un développement économique et humain durables. Dans le cadre de la présidence qu’elle assume cette année et d'une série d’actions concrètes, l’UE s’engage à empêcher le commerce des diamants de la guerre et à améliorer les moyens de subsistance des communautés minières.
