The majority of Mali’s regions are currently affected by violent conflict. At the same time, Mali’s climate is changing. This climate security risk brief outlines the following linkages between climate change and security in Mali and their implications for peace and stability.
This first part of the 2020 Berlin Climate and Security Conference will bring together leading figures from governments, international organisations, the scientific community, the private sector and civil society through two scientific workshops and a high-level political segment. After the summer break, a second part will reflect on how more comprehensive risk assessments could support forward-looking and preventative foreign and security policy.
“Food in the time of crises – how to feed the world without eating the planet?” That is the title for this year’s Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) digital conference, which will be broadcasted from Bonn, Germany.
Carbon Brief is hosting a free webinar to discuss the impacts that the COVID-19 pandemic is having on global emissions with a panel of leading climate scientists and analysts who have all examined this issue.
In response to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 situation, the UN System Staff College (UNSSC) is expanding its online offerings in the form of “Coffee Hours”. Climate security is one of the topics that will be featured. This session will focus on the opportunities and challenges of translating climate risk analysis into regional conflict and climate-sensitive programming.
As water is the most disruptive element in the ongoing climate crisis, how land is managed plays a major role in taming this disruption. This publication shows that avoiding, reducing and reversing land degradation can have positive long-term gains in water security.
In response to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 situation, the UN System Staff College (UNSSC) is expanding its online offerings in the form of “Coffee Hours,” with climate security being one of the featured topics. This session focused on successful field experiences of integrating environmental and climate change considerations into peacebuilding, prevention and sustaining peace in different regions.
In response to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 situation, the UN System Staff College (UNSSC) is expanding its online offerings in the form of “Coffee Hours”, with climate security being one of the featured topics. This session focused on the risks posed by climate change to peace and security, underlining the importance of integrating climate change considerations into peacebuilding, and vice versa.
What is needed to fully tackle the complex challenges around the environmental dimensions of armed conflicts? Civil society, affected states and experts have struggled with this essential question for decades.
The 2020 edition of the World Water Development Report (WWDR 2020) entitled ‘Water and Climate Change’ aims at helping the water community to tackle the challenges of climate change and informing the climate change community about the opportunities that improved water management offers in terms of adaptation and mitigation.
Today’s violent conflicts are proving deadlier and more difficult to resolve than ever before. In addition, there is a growing recognition of the role of climate change in exacerbating conflict risks. In light of these, a new report by UNU-CPR aims to support the UN and its partners in developing climate-sensitive conflict prevention approaches.
A growing body of research on the links between climate change, fragility and conflict shows that climate change will make peacebuilding more urgent and complex. Climate-sensitive peacebuilding has the potential to significantly contribute to addressing climate-fragility risks. The Peacebuilding Fund and the Peacebuilding Commission have both started to address the links between climate change, fragility and conflict and these experiences can be used to strengthen their engagement on the topic.
The Online Regional Dialogue for the Americas serves as a platform to open the conservation around key issues and questions on the future of multilateralism and its impact at the global, regional and national levels in the Americas.
Resources, including minerals and metals, underpin the world’s economies for almost all sectors, providing crucial raw materials for their industrial processes. Despite efforts to decouple economies from resource use towards a circular economy, demand for extractive resources will continue to grow on the back of emerging economies. This report maps existing international governance frameworks and initiatives which have overlapping subsets that focus on delivering the 2030 Global Agenda for Sustainable Development.
