As humanity struggles to confront the coronavirus pandemic, we face no greater obstacle than the violent conflicts worldwide that prevent many communities and nations from the necessary task of working in unison. Is it conceivable to have Israelis and Palestinians working cooperatively to contain the virus, or the opposing sides in bitter conflicts from Afghanistan to Yemen? It is not only conceivable, a practical model for achieving this cooperation is available in the work of environmental peacebuilders—visionary groups that have been working across the lines of conflict to confront the universal threat of climate change.

Corruption, coupled with a weak legal system, is a rampant problem in Afghanistan. Afghanistan currently ranks 175th in corruption globally, ahead of only Somalia and North Korea1, and fragile local governments and widespread fraud and bribery are prime causal factors of the ongoing insurgency in Afghanistan. The pervasive nature of bad governance and the lack of rule of law have fueled anti-state feelings among Afghan citizens, a sentiment often being exploited by the Taliban and other insur...
