Many of the 23 great ape range States are plagued by civil unrest, regional disputes, human-wildlife conflict, and armed political conflict. GRASP promotes conflict-sensitive solutions, and great apes are often a viable entry point for cooperation and peace-building, thereby promoting peace and stability in areas where conflict affects great ape populations.
Biodiversity-rich habitats that include great apes are often also rich in other resources such as oil and minerals. GRASP is heavily involved in finding solutions in the conflicts between conservation and extractive industries, and works as a moderator to use sustainable forest ecosystem management as tool for peace-building.
