The map can be searched by indicator, sub-indicator, state, Local Government Area, and time range.  The Peacebuilding Map also features analytical tools which allow for comparisons and trends.  Any findings should be considered as suggestive, not conclusive, and should be corroborated with other methods.  Click HERE for an instructional video on how to use the platform. Bulletins based on an analysis of this data can be viewed HERE.

  • Organizations self-identified as Peace Agents can be searched and visualized as green stars on the map.
