Paris Peace Forum 2020: Discover the 100 selected projects [fr]
The Paris Peace Forum continues to demonstrate that in a deteriorated international environment it is still possible to advance governance solutions, scale-up projects and launch new initiatives in peace & security, development, environment, new technologies, inclusive economy, or culture & education.
The Call for Projects launched in March 2020 received more than 850 applications - a record since the creation of the Forum - from all types of actors: NGOs, companies, international organizations, states, local authorities... This is a sign that, despite the pandemic, there remains an astounding reservoir of international cooperation and a willingness to respond to the crisis collectively.
Of the 100 Selected Projects, 46 focus on immediate responses to the health, social and economic crisis, particularly concentrating on the three priorities of this year’s Forum: the governance of health, the use and regulation of digital tools and platforms to respond to the crisis, and the support of civil society and economic activity in times of pandemics.
Other selected initiatives provide answers to many challenges that did not disappear with the Coronavirus or, on the contrary, have increased: reconciling development finance with climate efforts, protecting the oceans, improving access to clean water, making outer space safe and sustainable, regulation the use of data and AI, enhancing the governance of education and ensuring gender equality.
The Selection Committee evaluated all applications and made its choice based on the quality of the projects as well as a geographical balance.
Discover the projects to be showcased at the third edition of the Forum on 11-13 November 2020. Throughout the annual event, each project will have to opportunity to pitch their initiative before an audience of diverse actors.
