The CGIAR FOCUS Climate Security under the Initiatives on Climate Resilience (), and Fragility, Conflict, and Migration (FCM), the Alliance of International and CIAT, in partnership with the Zambian Ministry of Agriculture, the Ministry of Green Economy and the Environment, is hosting a closed-door workshop titled, “Towards a Common Vision of Climate, Peace and Security in Zambia” to be held on the 11th and 12th of July 2023 at Lusaka, Zambia.
This event is supported by the African Center for the Constructive Resolution of Disputes (ACCORD) and the Food, Agriculture, the Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FARNPAN) and the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA).
The 2-day workshop aims to gather experts from ministries, international organizations, civil society and academia to discuss a common agenda for climate, peace and security in Zambia.
The first day will focus on developing an understanding of current and foreseen conditions under which climate-related peace and security risks can emerge across the country. On the second day, participants will identify priority actions and integrated approaches to mitigate and address these risks in national-level policies and programming for climate action, with a strong focus on gender and social equity.
Through multi-stakeholder engagement and dialogue, this workshop will help identify areas for future collaboration and joint actions to simultaneously advance climate resilience, sustaining peace and social equity objectives.
More specifically, it will:
Build evidence and improve understanding of current and foreseen conditions under which climate-related risks to peace and security can emerge, with a particular focus on gender and intersectional social issues.
Identify priority actions and more integrated approaches to mitigate and address these risks in national-level policies and programming for climate action.
Promote a cross-fertilization of expertise and explore possible areas for further collaboration and entry points for joint actions to simultaneously advance climate-resilience and sustaining peace objectives.
