ACHIEVEMENT/ What is the project/initiative/startup/company you will be presenting at the Positive Economy Forum all about ?

Since the late nineteen nineties, the Cold War has been replaced by a series of multi-dimensional
conflicts and crises, in what Pope Francis describes as a ‘piecemeal third world war’. A
management of these conflicts that not only minimises the loss of human life, but that also succeeds
in restoring an adequate level of security, in the afflicted countries as well as worldwide in general,
brings with it enormous economic benefits. A proper use of high technology can be of great aid to
peacekeeping operations and the management of the crises caused by the conflicts. A concrete
example is the use of drones in humanitarian operations”.

LOCATION/ In which city, country, part of the world do you conduct your activities ?
