The world is facing unprecedented risks from climate change. In many places, climate impacts are compounding existing grievances and exacerbating pre-existing vulnerabilities, including those linked to gender and social inequity. Understanding and unpacking this confluence of risks has become increasingly important in conflict and political analysis, in identifying peacemaking and peacebuilding opportunities, and in building resilient, peaceful, and inclusive societies. This practice note aims to contribute to this area from a peace and security perspective. It identifies different ways in which peace and security, climate change, and gender can intersect and provides suggestions on how to think about these intersections in conflict and political analysis, as well as conflict prevention and peacemaking strategies.
