Mainstreaming environmental action in peacebuilding programming:
Five key steps

Climate is an obvious threat multiplier for conflict, and without the right approach, mitigation and adaptation plans can create or add to existing tensions in conflict-affected areas. At the same time, conflict programming that ignores the clear risks of climate fragility can hinder the green projects we urgently need.

In this publication, we explore what the peacebuilding sector can do to fold climate and environment-sensitive strategies into conflict programming to help achieve climate neutrality and sustainable peace.

We use prompt-style questions to inspire new ways of thinking to improve and adapt conflict programming to support the right kind of climate planning for local projects.

It will be a helpful tool in the early stages of design for future conflict programmes and cross-sector collaboration and learning.
