As part of Durham Law School’s event series on ‘Adaptation and Resilience’ this panel discussion brings together academics, policy makers and practitioners to discuss the connections between gender, climate and conflict.
The event is presented in partnership with the Global Alliance of Women Mediators Networks and asks specifically how gender commitments in the UNFCCC can be operationalized by governments.
The panel will address
- The ways that climate change gives rise to conflict
- The ways that climate related conflict is experienced by women
- The ways in which women mediators are working to prevent and manage such conflict
- What commitments need to be made at a global level to address the gendered risks of climate related conflict and support women mediators in their work.
