  • Dushanbe (Tajikistan) for Asia-Pacific

  • Ras-El-Matn (Lebanon) for Arab States

  • Gernika-Lumo (Spain) for Europe

  • Bogota (Colombia) for Latin America and Caribbean

The UNESCO Cities for Peace Prize, which is given every two years, pays tribute to the initiatives of municipalities which have succeeded in strengthening social cohesion, improving living conditions in disadvantaged neighbourhoods and developing genuine urban harmony. The candidate cities for the Prize may also wish to participate in the "UNESCO Cities for Peace Networks" consisting of local actors and other relevant partners. The networks serve as a means of identifying, validating and disseminating information on best practices.
