The broad range of topics examined by the International Commission on Peace and Food demonstrates the interrelated nature of the challenges of peace and development. Your collective endeavour illustrates the fact that no longer can global peace and security remain the preserve of political and military specialists. Without an adequate development effort, there can be no lasting peace and security. Conflicts over resources, ultra-nationalism exacerbated by the tensions of unemployment, poverty and despair at home will inevitably lead to resentment, and resentment turns only too easily into armed conflict. The establishment of secure foundations for peace will be aided by development and post-conflict peace building.
