Reducing climate-driven instability and conflict over land and natural resources | BCSC 2021

Panelists engaged with the following key framing questions:

  • How does climate change affect access to land, water and natural resources for the most vulnerable and marginalized people in fragile and conflict-affected contexts?
  • How can justice seekers effectively demand, and CIJ actors provide, more inclusive, responsive and accountable justice services in ways that strengthen access to land, water and natural resources, especially for women, young people and indigenous communities?
  • How can CIJ providers contribute to preventing or reducing intra- and inter-communal conflict over land, water and natural resources?
