There are several actions that can be conducted to lessen and prevent wars:
Encourage conversation, and diplomacy as the principal means of settling disputes between states. Encourage nations to resolve problems via peaceful means rather than using force.
Strengthen International Cooperation
Through institutions like the United Nations, regional collaborations, and agreements, promote international cooperation. Encourage nations to cooperate and find peaceful solutions to disputes to handle global concerns.
Promote respect for Human Rights
The avoidance of conflicts depends on protecting human rights and promoting equity in society. Encourage governments to protect and uphold human rights, ensure that all citizens have access to equal opportunities, and resolve complaints and inequalities that could result in violence.
Disarmament and arms control
To stop the spread of weapons, support disarmament agreements and arms control measures. Encourage governments to switch their military expenditures from defense to social development, education, and healthcare.
