White Paper on the Future of Environmental Peacebuilding
The White Paper is a collaborative, multi-author project which outlines a vision for the future of environmental peacebuilding.
The Geneva Peacebuilding Platform (GPP) currently acts as a neutral convener of the Geneva Dialogue on Environment, Climate, Conflict, and Peace (ECCP) in order to improve the exchange between environmental and peacebuilding communities. GPP, in collaboration with the PeaceNexus Foundation, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and the Environmental Peacebuilding Association (EnPax), is undertaking a collective process to develop a White Paper on the Future of Environmental Peacebuilding to advance a forward-looking, practical agenda for environmental peacebuilding.
The process is designed to act as a vehicle through which stakeholders may collaborate and build cross-cutting relationships in order to craft a common vision for the future. It also recognises the variety of perspectives and backgrounds present in the environment, climate, conservation, conflict, security, and peace fields. The White Paper will be formally launched at the 2nd International Environmental Peacebuilding Conference (Geneva, February 2022), and it will be shared at the United Nations Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment (Stockholm +50) to be held in June 2022.
A call for proposals and clear outline of how to participate in the White Paper process will be made public on 8 March.
