Recent insights in the field of peacebuilding and conflict transformation studies underline the importance of involving natural resources in conflict resolution. This research shows that, even in a pro-independence conflict that has been going on for over 37 years in southern Senegal, natural resource management can play a key role in conflict resolution. The local civil society confirms the involvement of natural resources in the conflict, but too often forgets them in its own activities as well as when making a list of key elements to achieve peace in the region.
