Environmental Peacebuilding


The project promotes the role of ecosystem management and natural resource governance in moving fragile communities on the pathway of resilience and sustainable peace. The project includes enhancing understanding of climate and environmental risks and integrating them into humanitarian responses, conflict recovery and sustainable peace. The project aims to also push for measures to reduce the effect of conflict and security operations on the environment.
