Environmental Peacebuilding: Prospects for the Asia-Pacific Region
17 November 2021 - 18 November 2021
The confluence of drastic environmental change, fragility and conflict in the Asia-Pacific region demands a rethinking of existing approaches to development, security, and peacebuilding. The region is home to the conflicts in Afghanistan and Myanmar, ongoing tension between India and Pakistan, and rising tensions between China and its neighbours.
The conference will involve two consecutive half-days including presentations, interactive sessions, discussions and networking. The conference will include brief and dynamic 10-15 minute presentations with time for questions and discussion. The sessions will fall into the three broad themes of:
- Climate change and security
- Resources, power and conflict
- Conflict transformation and environmental peacebuilding
In addition to reflecting and learning through presentations, there will be opportunities for interactive, unconferenced discussions and breakout networking.
