Climate change and other current environmental crises are a direct threat in themselves and a multiplier of many other threats, including poverty, displacement and violent conflict. How can a rights-based approach to climate action and natural resource management help sustain peace and prevent conflict in communities facing increasing and dangerous environmental disruption? Human security challenges due to climate change, and environmental cooperation for peacebuilding, will be discussed alongside the role of decentralized renewable energy systems as a form of peacebuilding.
