Calling all who work in fields related to environment, climate, conservation, conflict, peace, security, & more: you’re invited to contribute to a global White Paper on the Future of Environmental Peacebuilding!
The Geneva Peacebuilding Platform acts as a neutral convener of the Geneva Dialogue on Environment, Climate, Conflict, and Peace in order to improve the exchange between environmental and peacebuilding communities. In collaboration with PeaceNexus, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the Environmental Peacebuilding Association (EnPax), GPP proposes a collective process to develop a White Paper on the Future of Environmental Peacebuilding to advance a forward-looking practical agenda based on the patterns of consent and disagreement on key environmental peacebuilding questions.
The White Paper is a policy-oriented document, to be developed through a reflexive, consultative, multi-stakeholder process. It aims to deliver a strong, cogent message about the future of the field to the Stockholm+50 forum in June 2022.
This project was developed not only to advance a policy agenda for environmental peacebuilding, but also to foster inter-institutional collaboration and shared innovation for the field. It is intentionally designed as a highly collaborative project, inviting institutions to work together to develop submissions, and creating space for field-wide reflection on drafts at each step of the process.
To learn more about the White Paper and to submit a proposal, please read the concept note on this link.
The deadline for proposal submission is 16 April 2021 at 23:59 CET.
