Workshop | Peace, Conflict, and NAP Processes (Path to the Hague)

For states experiencing conflict, climate change adaptation is rarely, if ever, an immediate priority: issues such as national defence, the prevention of further loss of life and suffering, and the establishment of peace take precedence. However, ignoring the close links between climate change and peacebuilding contexts would be a mistake.

How can governments initiate, finance, implement, and track progress from their National Adaptation Plan (NAP) processes in conflict-affected contexts? Join us for a conversation around these issues in the upcoming online workshop Towards a Theoretical Framework for Conflict-Sensitive Climate Adaptation Governance, co-hosted by the Environmental Peacebuilding Association and CGIAR.

As part of the event, our experts will introduce the latest NAP GN guidance note Peace, Conflict, and National Adaptation Plan (NAP) Processes, which lays out how conflict-affected countries could align their NAP processes with peacebuilding plans and agendas, and how NAP processes can be made conflict-sensitive.

This workshop is part of The Path to The Hague event, an inclusive and consultative process to elevate and diversify voices in environmental peacebuilding, and to learn from regional insights leading up to the Third International Conference on Environmental Peacebuilding, to be held in the Hague in June 2024.
