Beyond Greening the Blue Helmets: Renewable Energy Transitions for Peacebuilding in Conflict Settings

May 31 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

| Free

 

The Pro­gram on Con­flict, Cli­mate Change and Green Devel­op­ment and the United Nations announce a meet­ing on a new approach to clean energy:

There is a strik­ing over­lap among the regions at great­est risk of con­flict, those most vul­ner­a­ble to cli­mate change, and high lev­els of energy poverty – pri­mar­ily in Africa, the Mid­dle East and South­ern Asia. Renew­able energy rep­re­sents an under-​​utilized entry point. Yet conflict-​​affected set­tings are char­ac­ter­ized by unique chal­lenges, and the renew­able energy rev­o­lu­tion that is trans­form­ing much of the world risks bypass­ing the conflict-​​prone states that stand the most to gain. The poten­tial for renew­able energy to deliver mul­ti­ple eco­nomic, social, envi­ron­men­tal and peace ben­e­fits in con­flict set­tings remains largely untapped.
