    Climate change, peace and progress: Renewable energy opportunities in the Middle East

    Climate change, peace and progress: Renewable energy opportunities in the Middle East

    As a heat dome drives record high temperatures for June across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), we speak with Ali Nasrallah, a green energy policy and climate security expert to discuss how climate change, rising temperatures and water scarcity are disrupting daily life and infrastructure, exacerbating tensions and contributing to new conflicts. We also speak about the energy transition and progress made -from regional leadership with COP27 and COP28- to national legislation and incentives, as well as the importance of prioritising cross-border programming, partnerships and how access to data and visualisation can increase transparency and build trust with different stakeholders.

    It takes a climate-smart village: Peace-positive approaches for sustainable resilience

    It takes a climate-smart village: Peace-positive approaches for sustainable resilience

    In an era of polycrisis, operationalising the humanitarian-development-peace nexus is crucial for finding solutions that create synergies between these areas, rather than looking at them individually. This is specially the case in conflict, fragile and displacement settings. In this episode, we speak with Grazia Pacillo, Senior Scientist and Co-Lead of CGIAR FOCUS Climate Security, about the climate-smart villages project, which tools it offers to avoid maladaptation and produce co-benefits, and the pathways through which it contributes to peace. We also speak about conflict sensitivity throughout the project cycle, the importance of partnerships, and how to build an evidence base for what (doesn't) work in climate security programming.Discover CGIAR'S Climate Security Programming Dashboard for Climate Finance (CSPDxCF).

    Livelihoods: The socioeconomic link between climate change and security

    Livelihoods: The socioeconomic link between climate change and security

    Livelihoods are how the necessities of life are secured. They are a determining factor in many contexts around the world. Many livelihoods are dependent on a healthy environment and a stable climate, making them particularly sensitive to climate and environmental crises.  At the same time, they are deeply entangled with social and economic dynamics. As a consequence, livelihoods form a key pathway in the climate-security nexus. In this host-to-host deep dive, we get to talk a bit about our how livelihood security features in our own work, a few experiences and findings, as well as key entry points and recommendations that have emerged from our projects and initiatives at adelphi.Further readings:Climate, Peace and Security Assessment: MaliNext steps towards an inclusive Climate, Peace and Security Agenda Weathering Risk methodology Climate Security Study: Kenya Pacific Climate Security Assessment GuideThis podcast is a production of adelphi.

    Reconnecting people to their power: Transitional justice and 'cosmovisión' in Colombia

    Colombia faces multiple challenges - from a complex peacebuilding process after more than 50 years of armed conflict to growing climate change impacts on its natural resources. Disputes over land use and governance have been at the heart of Colombia's struggle, and while everyone has been affected by it, indigenous and Afro-Colombian communities take a particularly high toll. This episode addresses the importance of considering environmental factors in pursuing victim-centred and community-based approaches to transitional and restorative justice. It also discusses lessons from the Colombian case for the international humanitarian justice system. Tune in for compelling insights from regional experts Valeria Patricia Moscoso Urzúa (Justice Rapid Response) and Héctor Morales Muñoz (adelphi).This episode was produced in cooperation with Justice Rapid Response.*The acronym JEP, mentioned several times in this episode, means 'Jurisdicción Especial para la Paz' (=Special Jurisdiction for Peace)Related resources: Report 'A Dangerous Climate'Watch explainer on how climate and land issues relates to Colombia's armed conflict (Spanish/English)This podcast is a production of adelphi.

    Roots for peace: Bringing together diverse stakeholders for an inclusive response to climate and insecurity in Haiti

    Roots for peace: Bringing together diverse stakeholders for an inclusive response to climate and insecurity in Haiti

    Haiti is facing a deep security, political and humanitarian crisis and is simultaneously one of the most vulnerable countries in Latin America and the Caribbean to climate change. Rising temperatures and declining rainfall have intensified drought and climate-related storms are growing more intense, causing devastating flooding. By adversely impacting livelihoods, food security, water scarcity and health conditions, climate change is exacerbating the current multifaceted and complex crisis grappling the country.In this episode, we bring together the researchers behind the Roots for Peace report to discuss experiences conducting the study, setting up the Haiti Climate Security Working Group and share with the broader research community, the lessons learnt while doing so. We also take a look at the main pathways of climate and insecurity in Haiti identified in the study, recommendations and next steps. Join us for this insightful conversation with Paule Juneau (UNEP Haiti), Beatrice Mosello (adelphi) and Jessica Hsu (Haiti-based researcher & anthropologist).Discover the "Roots for Peace" report: adelph.it/WRHaitiThis podcast is a production of adelphi.

    Climate, peace and security in Yemen: How deteriorating rights of women and minorities affect the whole of society

    Climate, peace and security in Yemen: How deteriorating rights of women and minorities affect the whole of society

    Since 2014, Yemen has been ravaged by civil war. Our guest today - Yemeni journalist, writer and activist Hind Al-Eryani - brings to light how the war is impacting the lives of women, children, LGBTQ+ communities and religious minorities. Hind explains how women's righs have benn deteriorating in Yemen, and the ways in which this affects society as a whole, for example by hindering climate adaptation. We look into the impacts of climate change on resources, particularly water, and how this fed into insecurity dynamics in the lead up to the conflict, and we discuss whether Germany's feminist foreign policy approach can spill over to women affected by climate change in insecurity worldwide.This podcast is a production of adelphi.

Kathryn Goodwin ,

A very informative podcast

One of my favourites! It does a fantastic job of analysing the climate-security-peace nexus with a range of fascinating topics. I think it does a great job of identifying the various points of entry as well as providing a basic understanding of the contexts in which these stories are centered. I’m so happy it’s back for another season!
