Our mission

We have the twin aims of peace and conservation because conflicts threaten the environment and are themselves increasingly the result of environmental pressures.

Know more
The Foundation draws its inspiration from the Brazzaville Accords, which were signed in the Congolese capital on 13 December 1988. A key moment in the history of modern Africa, they led to a peaceful settlement of the conflicts in southern Africa, secured the independence of Namibia and paved the way for the release of Nelson Mandela and an end to apartheid.
