Across the world, climate change and environmental degradation have sweeping impact on local communities. In many areas of the world they cause food insecurity, the displacement of millions and undermine human security. The risk of escalation increases. At the same time, conflicts diminish people's ability to adapt to environmental challenges. The online event on Friday, 2nd December explores measures to mitigate these overlapping crises and reflects upon the developments at COP27.
Across the world, climate change and environmental degradation have sweeping impact on local communities. In areas affected by ongoing conflict like the Sahel, the Horn of Africa, and parts of the Middle East, they are causing mass food insecurity, displacing millions, undermining human security, and increasing the risks of further escalations. Meanwhile, conflict itself is diminishing people’s ability to adapt to major environmental challenges, such as desertification, salinisation and land erosion.
Interrupting this cycle of environmental breakdown and insecurity requires simultaneous and coordinated action in both the climate and the conflict pillars. This online event on Friday, 2nd December will convene high-level actors across policy, practice and academia, to explore how to accelerate adaptation and ecosystem restoration, while working to end violent conflict and create sustainable peace, with reflections on how developments at COP27 can be harnessed to this end.
The event is organised by the Berghof Foundation in cooperation with the Environmental Change Institute at the University of Oxford.
