In collaboration with ACCORD, FBA presents a new series of research briefs highlighting different aspects of mediation.
Closing the Governance Gap to Achieve Climate Security
This brief aims to give an overview of climate security and governance, drawn from existing research and based on experiences from the work of the Folke Bernadotte Academy (FBA). The brief is centered around the discussion in overcoming governance gaps to achieve climate security in the context of peacebuildning.
– With this brief, the Folke Bernadotte Academy (FBA) continues to deepen its collective understanding of the important role that governance plays in adapting, mitigating, and preventing climate related security risks. It adds an important piece to the climate security puzzle as it highlights the interconnected relationship between climate change, governance, and conflict. This brief not only sheds lights on current thinking concerning inclusive governance and climate change, but also asks important questions that can be translated into ideas for further research. – Tobias Petrelius, Senior Coordinator Climate Security at FBA.
