Conflict Index (Global opportunity report) 2017

Conflict Index measures the global peace based on the level of safety and security, the extent of a domestic or international conflict, and the degree of militarisation.

Conflicts can rip apart regions, countries, communities, and families. As millions of people flee their homes due to conflict and persecution, societies are left in social and political turmoil. Such conflicts and instability are putting increasing pressure on the world economy. It has been estimated that in 2015 alone, violent conflicts caused more than a 13 percent loss in the global GDP, an increase of 15 percent compared to 2008.

“Maps are like campfires – everyone gathers around them, because they allow people to understand complex issues at a glance, and find agreement about how to help the land.”
