This Guide collects good practices on the mediation of resource conflicts and consolidates lessons from decades of hands-on experience at both the local and international levels. The document offers a methodology for mediating such conflicts; examines sector-specific challenges that may arise when mediating conflicts over extractive resources, land, or water, and provides guidance on intervention strategies for natural resources in the broader context of peace negotiations.
