WEBINAR: Sustaining Peace I – The role of conflict-sensitive natural resource management approaches

Register for the webinar here or join the event directly on 23 January here.

This webinar will examine the linkages between natural resource management, investment in resilient agricultural livelihoods and contributions to peacebuilding and sustaining peace. Interventions supporting food security and nutrition play a critical role in protecting and saving lives and livelihoods and in strengthening resilience in conflict-affected situations. However, interventions supporting livelihoods, particularly those focused on natural resource management, can also play an important role in sustaining peace and in directly preventing conflict, through a number of different pathways.

Some of these pathways are explored in the 2017 State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World report on ‘Building Resilience for Peace and Food Security’, and are referenced in the 2015 CFS Framework For Action for Food Security and Nutrition in Protracted Crises (CFS-FFA).

This webinar will explore how conflict-sensitive approaches to natural resource access and use can make a contribution to sustaining peace, and how investments in building resilience can help reduce specific conflict drivers. The event will draw on and be illustrated by examples from:

  • SIPRI’s perspectives on climate security and management of natural resource conflicts, focusing on laying the foundations for socially, economically and politically resilient peace;
  • Mercy Corps/pact’s experience on natural resource sharing agreements between the Dodoth and Turkana in Uganda to strengthen communities’ capacities to manage interethnic conflicts; and
  • FAO’s work on natural resource access and use between Misseriya and Dinka Ngok communities through a multi-sector livelihood project in the contested Abyei Administrative Area.

  • Florian Krampe, Researcher, SIPRI's Climate Change and Risk Project, Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI)
