PeaceLab Event: Climate Change, Crisis Prevention and Peacebuilding
Climate change impacts threaten peace. Taking stock of its engagement in crisis prevention, conflict resolution, and peacebuilding, the German government identified climate-related conflicts as one of its priorities for the upcoming years. What is Germany’s commitment to the climate-conflict nexus and how can it be expanded? How can the German government effectively adapt its existing tools to new challenges? What lessons can it draw on to better support affected regions?
As part of an event series on the lessons learned in the German government’s implementation report on its Guidelines “Preventing Crises, Resolving Conflict, Building Peace”, the Global Public Policy Institute (GPPi) invites you to an online workshop. In breakout groups, four topics will be discussed and all participants are invited to create actionable recommendations. The event will be based on the German government’s implementation report, the study by the Advisory Board on Crisis Prevention and Peacebuilding “Klimawandel und Konflikte” (published in January 2021), and the PeaceLab blog debate on the climate-conflict nexus initiated by the Advisory Board.
Advisory Board members Dr. Kira Vinke and Prof. Dr. Dr. Hans-Joachim Giessmann participate in the event.
