Beatrice Mosello

Dr. Beatrice Mosello is Senior Advisor on climate diplomacy and security at adelphi. Beatrice’s work focuses on researching and advising on climate- and conflict-sensitive approaches at the multilateral level that deliver on both resilience and peace. She is especially concerned with ensuring that issues of inclusion – in particular around gender – are fully integrated in strategies and policies to address the linkages between climate change and peace. Building on her previous experience advising businesses in the extractive sector on sustainability and climate risks, Beatrice is also interested in understanding how critical minerals can play their part in a conflict-free and just transition to low-carbon economy.

Roots for peace - uncovering climate security challenges in Haiti and what to do about them

Roots for peace: uncovering climate security challenges in Haiti and what to do about them

Roots for peace - uncovering climate security challenges in Haiti and what to do about them

In 2022, the United Nations and Haiti’s Ministry of the Environment took the initiative to establish the Haiti Climate Security Working Group, bringing together UN agencies, international organisations, Haitian government institutions and civil society organisations. To help guide the work of this group, adelphi led a collaborative effort to undertake a study mapping out the linkages between climate, peace and security in Haiti, applying the methodology of the Weathering Risk initiative. This policy brief presents some of the key findings of the study and proposes a new approach with an explicit focus on climate and peacebuilding, and with inclusion at its heart, to help address Haiti’s climate security challenges.

Rethinking human mobility in the face of global changes

Rethinking human mobility_CASCADES_COVER

This paper examines the interaction between climate impacts, migration, displacement and (in)security. It aims to go beyond the prevailing narratives on climate change and migration to better understand the different ways in which mobility can serve as an adaptive strategy to climate- and conflict-related risks and vulnerabilities.

Climate-Fragility Risk Brief: The Caribbean

CSEN, Caribbean, climate, fragility, risk, brief

Caribbean countries, most of which are small island developing states, have long suffered from the destructive impacts of natural hazards, including hurricanes, severe weather events, drought and sea level rise. Climate change is projected to make them worse.

Climate change and security - THE HANDBOOK

This manual is a compilation of introductory texts and the most relevant reports in the field of climate change and security. It covers the issue of how climate change converges with other global pressures, such as population growth, uncontrolled urbanisation, increased demand for resources and environmental degradation, to exacerbate global security challenges and intensify instability in fragile societies.

The Climate Change-Conflict Connection - The Current State of Knowledge

This Research Paper takes stock of what we currently know about the links between climate change, fragility and conflict, summarizing evidence from research and practice over the last 25 years. Going beyond establishing a statistical, direct link, qualitative research is now demonstrating the complex relationship between climate change impacts and conflict through a variety of pathways.

Linking Adaptation and Peacebuilding - Lessons Learned and the Way Forward

Evidence from existing programs shows that climate change adaptation interventions can contribute to peacebuilding, and peacebuilding can have significant adaptation benefits. A number of contextual factors such as livelihood and food security, natural resources governance, state legitimacy and effectiveness, migration, social cohesion and marginalisation are decisive in shaping these climate-fragility risks.
