Climate, peace and security: Operationalizing the Declaration on Climate, Relief, Recovery, & Peace (CRRP)

The practical note is out now! Read more here

Session description:

This session will encourage reflection and discussion on financing and programming peace-positive climate action/climate-informed peacebuilding. To do so, it will present the experience of the climate, peace and security as well as environmental peacebuilding programming supported by the UN Peacebuilding Fund (PBF), based on the findings of the first Thematic Review on climate security and peacebuilding (2023), and draw out learnings for future investments in climate-security efforts in fragile and conflict affected contexts for international climate finance institutions. Building on the outcomes of COP28, this session will provide the frame for a first discussion around operationalizing the Climate, Relief, Recovery & Peace (CRRP) Declaration, bringing together key organizations that endorsed it and hence agreed to help put it into practice (including the WB, DPPA and adelphi, among others). It also builds on some of the early lessons from the UN Climate Security Mechanism (CSM) and conversations commenced at the Berlin Climate Security Conference (BCSC) in Nairobi and Berlin in 2023, as well as on the outcomes of a series of joint trainings on climate, peace and security programming and finance.


The discussion will be guided by three experts:

  • Ms. Diane Scheinberg, Peacebuilding Support Office (PBSO)/Peacebuilding Fund (PBF)
  • Ms. Paule Juneau, United Nations Environment Programme Haiti
  • Mr. Mohammed Fadiga, FAO sub-regional office for West Africa and Sahel

Moderated by Dr. Beatrice Mosello, adelphi

Guiding questions:

  1. Existing experiences designing and delivering peace-positive climate action and climate-security risk informed peacebuilding in fragile and conflict-affected countries: what are successful examples, and what has made them successful? 
  2. How can these learnings inform future investments especially for international climate finance institutions? 
  3. What partnerships opportunities exist to take this agenda forward, including between climate finance, IFIs, the private sector?
