Building and sustaining peace in fragile and conflict-affected states is rarely, if ever, straightforward. Increasingly, peacebuilding actors aim not only to end violence but seek a positive long-term legacy towards positive peace – among others through the development of specific environment-related projects that may benefit societies and ecosystems over the long term and more broadly. This roundtable convenes scholars at different career stages and disciplines that actively contribute new research trajectories to the field of environmental peacebuilding, specifically post-conflict management of renewable natural resource in relation to positive peace.
