Global peace index 2019: Measuring peace in a complex world

Source(s):  Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP)

This is the thirteenth edition of the Global Peace Index (GPI), which ranks 163 independent states and territories according to their level of peacefulness. This report presents the most comprehensive data-driven analysis to date on peace, its economic value, trends, and how to develop peaceful societies.

The report reveals that an estimated 971 million people live in areas with high or very high climate change exposure. Of this number, 400 million (41 per cent) reside in countries which already have low levels of peacefulness. Climate change can indirectly increase the likelihood of violent conflict through its impacts on resource availability, livelihood, security and migration. In order to address these challenges, there will need to be much greater cooperation both within and between countries. Countries with high levels of Positive Peace — the attitudes, institutions and structures that create and sustain peaceful societies — are better able to manage climate-induced shocks and tend to have higher environmental performance than those with lower levels of Positive Peace.
