UNE Peace Studies Conference 2015

The conference invites supporting and opposing papers on defining peacebuilding, with a focus on environmental peace. Yet, the conference also questions whether peacebuilding, or 'peace infrastructure', as a concept, term and plan for implementation, is any different to previous, much-maligned concepts of 'tick-box peacebuilding' that prefers bureaucratic and economic 'solutions' to often social and cultural problems.

Central America & Caribbean
South America

The Latin America and Caribbean region is particularly vulnerable to some of the most challenging aspects of climate change – sea-level rise affecting coastal cities, changes in precipitation impacting agriculture, glacial melting threatening water reserves. Population trends – like migration and urbanization – can exacerbate these challenges or, in some cases, serve as methods of adaptation.

The Sahel, Beyond the Headlines: Population, Environment, and Security Dynamics

The dynamics that are compounding the Sahel region’s security emergencies are complex: Poor governance, rapid population growth, and environmental pressures, like food insecurity, climate change, and poor natural resource management, all contribute to chronic crises and eroding the region’s resilience to shocks and stressors. These interlinked challenges require integrated responses. Speakers from the Sahel region and US-based experts will engage in solutions-oriented policy dialogues that address demographic trends, reproductive health, food security, and peacebuilding. Additional cross-cutting themes throughout the discussion will include gender, youth, and health.

U-Peace Online Course on Climate Change, International Law and Human Security

The course is intended for staff members of the United Nations and its agencies; staff members of other intergovernmental organizations, NGOs, and government agencies; academics; practitioners; and students, who are working or researching in fields related to climate change and environmental, human rights, international law, development, and migration, amongst others.


The final objective of this workshop is the identification of a core set indicators and data sets with a global coverage for the key determinants of climate resilient development  (natural hazards related to climate change, vulnerability, adaptive capacity, mitigation, resilience, and development) to guide policy actions in this area. It will offer the opportunity of knowledge sharing between experts, scientists and practitioners, thereby establishing an open forum on climate resilient development which will be supported by a web knowledge platform.
