21 October 2021
Online

This webinar will cover the gender dimensions of climate security, the need of gender-sensitive analysis in climate adaptation and peacebuilding interventions, and integrated approaches to build resilience, promote gender equality and enhance the prospects of peace.

21 October 2021, 16:00-17:00 CEST

The evidence about the conflicts we have seen around the world since the turn of the century points to a simple conclusion: Conflicts between communities, armed groups, and even military forces are increasingly being affected by changing climates, environmental degradation, food security, and the struggle to control a finite pool of natural resources. Because of a changing climate, the way governments and communities manage land, water, and food systems is now more than ever a pivotal factor in whether societies can endure peace.

Gender-sensitive and gender-inclusive peace initiatives are essential in securing a sustainable peace, and the gender dimension of the climate security nexus overlaps with this. This initiative endeavours to improve understanding of the gender-differentiated effects of climate change, and the role that these impacts play in the promotion of an inclusive and peaceful society.
