Building peace and protecting the environment: Supporting the roles of civil society actors in the Middle East
When: 18 October 10:30-12:00
Format: Panel discussion
The aim of the session will be to discuss the work of civil society actors carrying out conflict prevention and environmental protection activities in the Middle East, and to put forward recommendations on how the European Union (EU) and other international actors should support civil society efforts to build peace and to address the effects of climate change in the region.
The panellists will provide insights on their organisations’ work, priorities and/or needs in addressing the intersection between climate change, environmental degradation, conflict and gender inequality. The discussion will then be opened to the audience to share experiences, best practices and lessons learned in developing integrated responses to these challenges, and to reflect on recommendations for the EU and other international actors
