The Triple-Nexus and Climate Change in Conflict-Affected Settings: Experiences, Lessons Learned, and Best Practices
CSPPS is happy to share a new article by Peter Van Sluijs, Coordinator of the Civil Society Platform for Peacebuilding and Statebuilding (CSPPS), and Caitlin Masoliver, Research Officer at the Institute of Security and Global Affairs of Leiden University in the Netherlands: “The Triple-Nexus and Climate Change in Conflict-Affected Settings: Experiences, Lessons Learned, and Best Practices”, first published on 5 October 2022 in the Journal of Peacebuilding & Development, by SAGE Publications.
Driven by the multifaceted and intersectional impacts of climate change that CSPPS and its members have observed, both at the macro-level, as well as in the direct effects on their work in the fields of peacebuilding and conflict prevention, humanitarian assistance, and sustainable development, this policy briefing is aimed to introduce the ways the climate crisis can be seen playing out within the context of the Humanitarian-Development-Peace nexus (HDP). It illustrates concrete and innovative activities that are already being implemented by civil society organisations to ameliorate the negative impact of the climate crisis.
After a brief introduction to the HDP-Climate Change Nexus, the briefing presents in the same context two qualitative case studies from both Liberia and Somalia. These describe the differences that the two countries face concerning the problems and aims of climate actions, illustrating various types of climate actions civil society is engaged in. The case studies feature the work done by CSPPS-members in the two countries in focus.
Both cases exemplify the importance to draw upon and support existing initiatives at the local level for effective action. In the conclusion, concrete recommendations are formulated for follow-up action.
