UNEP/ UN Women Session

Climate Change, Peace, and Security: Understanding Risk Through an Integrated Lens (Interactive Group Exercise)
29 September, 3-4 pm

Conducting sound integrated analysis is an essential first step to designing programmes, policies, and strategic plans that address climate-related security risks using a gender-responsive and conflict sensitive approach. A new e-learning course – developed jointly by UNEP, adelphi, the Climate Security Mechanism, and UN Women – lays the foundation for understanding the interlinkages between climate change, peace, security, and social and gender-based inclusion. It provides participants with the knowledge and practical tools to conduct integrated analysis of contexts affected by climate change and insecurity, and to design policies, plans, and programmatic interventions to prevent and manage resulting risks.  

This interactive workshop will adapt e-learning material for a live, virtual format. In a short one-hour session, participants will be presented with different pieces of data – including field interviews, climate data, and conflict analysis – to assess the linkages between climate change, security, and gender/social inclusion in a specific scenario and identify entry points for integrated action.

This session will require active participation from participants. The number of participants for this training is limited and registration will be on a first come first serve basis.

Registration to this interactive group exercise is now open. 

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the interactive group exercise.
