Land, Security and Climate: Breaking the silos to safeguard the future
Climate change, environmental degradation, food insecurity, conflict and migration can interact in negative feedback loops. Only integrated, cross-sectoral solutions can address this nexus of threats.
The Geneva Centre for Security Policy is partnering with Initiatives of Change to equip the next generation of policymakers and researchers with the understanding, skills and networks to respond to this challenge - through a pioneering series of Summer Academies on Land, Security and Climate Change as part of the annual Caux Forum
A high-level public event will inaugurate the first Summer Academy.
