This session featured an interview between Michael Keating (EIP), Janel Galvanek (Berghof Foundation), and Janani Vivekananda (adelphi). The discussion moved beyond the question how to integrate climate security into mediation and peacebuilding to exploring how climate and environmental insecurity can be made useful in conflict contexts to provide opportunities for mediation, dialogue, and peace work.
