Peacebuilding Commission: food security, rule of law, climate-security nexus among Italy’s priorities

NEW YORK, FEBRUARY 2 – Italy launched today its mandate in the Peacebuilding Commission and laid out its priorities: food security for its vital implications; the promotion of the rule of law; the climate-security nexus, as climate change represents for many the single greatest threat to their wellbeing, security and livelihoods; the support of regional and subregional organizations in their peacebuilding efforts; prioritizing the needs of the most vulnerable countries of the world.

The Italian permanent Representative to the UN, Ambassador Maurizio Massari, pledged to increase the funding to peacebuilding, also through assessed contributions. He also called for a more ambitious and structured collaboration between the Peacebuilding Commission and the Security Council, aligning their agendas and organizing meetings between these two bodies.

“We need international cooperation, as opposed to fragmentation. Within and outside the Peacebuilding Commission, Italy intends to bridge this increasing, devastating divide, to restore trust, to find common grounds”, said the Italian Ambassador.

Italy was re-elected last July among the members of the PBC for a two year mandate. Established in 2005, the Peacebuilding Commission is an intergovernmental advisory body of 31 Member States that supports peace efforts in conflict-affected countries and is a key addition to the capacity of the International Community in the broad peace agenda.
