The on-line course begins with a global overview to enhance understanding of the link between natural resources and conflict, and their overall effect on development and the UN-EU interventions in managing them.
The following 3 modules relate to specific natural resources concerns: land, extractive industries and renewable resources. Throughout the course, the learner will follow three Peace and Development Practitioners during their missions to three countries facing critical situations exacerbated by Natural Resources. The learner will understand how natural resources can create or aggravate conflict and will learn to assess the situation and look for opportunities for interventions that can prevent or reduce conflict.
The completion of the course is validated with a certificate through an assessment.
