Bologna Peacebuilding Forum 2021. Peacebuilding and Climate Change
In what ways does climate change affect violent conflict? What opportunities – if any – can the climate emergency and related environmental challenges provide to enhance the prospects of durable peace? How is climate change impacting peace processes in the Mediterranean region? The third edition of the Bologna Peacebuilding Forum addressed these and other questions related to the nexus between peacebuilding and climate change.
Report of the third edition of the Bologna Peacebuilding Forum, organised on 18-19 May 2021 by the Agency for Peacebuilding (AP) in collaboration with the New-Med Research Network.
