ECC Exhibition in Mexico

29 April 2019 - 14 June 2019
Mexico City, Mexico

The exhibition Environment, Conflict and Cooperation (ECC) shows the unprecedented environmental pressures and climate extremes that the world faces today. The ECC Exhibition in Mexico is being organised by GFLAC and adelphi. It is supported by a grant of the German Federal Foreign Office and is part of the Climate Diplomacy initiative.

These environmental pressures are threatening the essential resources – fertile land and fresh water – that we all depend on, in­creasing poverty and damaging livelihoods for millions of people. These impacts also heighten tensions between groups, fuel­ling political and economic instability and exacerbating conflict. In turn, instability can make it hard to manage natural re­sources sustainably, creating a downward spiral – which is especially dangerous for already fragile countries. The ECC Exhibi­tion thus poses three main questions:

  • How will increased environmental pressures affect peace and security?
  • How does a changing climate threaten lives and livelihoods?
  • How can we build resilience to environmental change?
