Harnessing Market Forces for Peace

We cultivate peace-supporting economic opportunities in fragile and at-risk countries.

The Peace Dividend Initiative (PDI) is a peace-dividend accelerator dedicated to harnessing market forces for peace. PDI bridges the gap between peace mediation and economic actors through dialogue, incubation, and investment.

Headquartered in Geneva, PDI is connected to peacemakers, international organisations, governments, investors, and entrepreneurs.

We are committed to serving the needs of the peace sector through harnessing market forces.

The Peace Dividend Initiative was born as a result of peace actors’ demand for an innovative mechanism that could support their work to build and consolidate peace by effectively harnessing market forces.
