Cross-cutting analysis, informed policymaking and strong cooperation across sectors and levels is critical to finding sustainable solutions and bridging silos between climate, peacebuilding, and conflict prevention communities. International, regional and sub-regional organizations play an important role in the development, promotion and implementation of such approaches.

Gathering Climate, Peace and Security (CPS) Advisors from UN field missions, representatives from regional organizations as well as thematic experts, the workshop set out to facilitate a crossregional and cross-institutional knowledge exchange and partnership on CPS. This note summarizes the workshop’s discussions and findings and provides recommendations for further advancing and mainstreaming CPS efforts.

The report presents key recommendations to strengthen multilateral partnerships that foster more impactful climate responses for sustaining peace including:

  1. Strengthening coordination mechanisms by focusing on joint analysis and capacity building for national and local governments, and recognizing the crucial role of local governments as implementing partners in climate, peace, and security efforts.
  2. Increasing climate finance to meet the needs of national governments in conflict-affected and fragile countries and improving their technical expertise in accessing climate finance.
  3. Integrating climate adaptation across the peace continuum, by adopting a cross-disciplinary approach and integrating climate adaptation into peacebuilding and conflict resolution initiatives.
  4. Including climate and environment Advisors in mission planning processes to mainstream consideration of climate and environmental security risks and translate analysis into context-specific actions.
  5. Enhance partnerships among stakeholders to facilitate exchange of ideas and access to expertise.
