Sustaining Peace in an Era of Climate Change: Policy and Practice for Preventing Conflict

Part of the Geneva Peace Week

Climate change and other current environmental crises are a direct threat in themselves and a multiplier of many other threats, including poverty, displacement and violent conflict. How can a rights-based approach to climate action and natural resource management help sustain peace and prevent conflict in communities facing increasing and dangerous environmental disruption? Human security challenges due to climate change, and environmental cooperation for peacebuilding, will be discussed alongside the role of decentralized renewable energy systems as a form of peacebuilding.

  • Lindsey Cook, QUNO representative on Climate Change
  • Anna Brach, Geneva Centre for Security Policy, Senior Programme Officer in the Emerging Security Challenges Programme
  • Amanda Kron, Legal Advisor, Crisis Management Branch of UN Environment, Geneva
  • Isobel Edwards, QUNO Programme Assistant working on the Human Impacts of Climate Change (HICC)
