Where: tbc, Berlin, Germany 
Registration: Invitation only, contact Nina Schmelzer (schmelzer@adelphi.de)

This 90-minute-roundtable discussion aims at encouraging reflection and knowledge exchange on programming and financing peace-positive climate action/climate-informed peacebuilding, with a view to feed into efforts to implement Germany’s Strategy on Climate Foreign Policy in a whole-of-government-approach, as well as support the mainstreaming of climate- and conflict-sensitive approaches into other policy dimensions. To do so, it will bring together policy-makers from different German ministries, as well as practitioners and experts from German-based NGOs, think tank and academia that have expertise working on and implementing integrated climate-peace projects and programmes in various contexts. Current experiences at designing and implementing integrated climate-peacebuilding projects and programmes in the context of the Weathering Risk Initiative in Iraq and Haiti will be presented to kick-start the discussion.
