This event will feature a panel of practitioners and women activists who will share their insights on the nexus of gender, conflict, and environment. The discussion will examine the impacts of conflict-linked climate risks and environmental degradation through a gender lens. Researchers and grassroots activists from Iraq, Syria, South Sudan, and Colombia will share their experiences and analysis of the various gendered impacts of militarism and conflict on the environment, as well as the importance of gender equality in influencing environmental peacebuilding in conflict-affected areas.
