We execute programming across the following methodologies to advance tailored, community-grounded solutions toward a climate-resilient and peaceful future.
Outreach Activities: ICP conducts workshops, webinars, and similar activities that link Institute expertise directly to opportunities and challenges facing vulnerable communities. ICP engages participants in comprehensive, futures-inspired, and action-oriented learning.
Leadership Training: ICP offers climate and peace leadership education programming to students and future leaders in the Pacific Asia region to provide participants with a clearer understanding that 21st century leadership must be climate-resilient and peace oriented to be optimally effective.
Community Bridging & Holding Space: ICP drafts and employs diverse curricula, hosts dialogues, and holds the space to connect uncommon allies, communities at odds, and siloed communities of practice.
Partnership Facilitation: ICP hosts multi-stakeholder convenings and partnerships that pioneer best practices in climate adaptation and peacebuilding, strengthen energy and food security, and sustain resilient communities.
Policy Response: ICP partners with communities and leaders to develop tailored policy responses to enhance resilience and support peace, drawing from a growing library of “best practice” mitigation and adaptation solution sets.
Policy Guidance: ICP provides policy advice and support to legislative bodies, agencies, and private entities as they negotiate climate responses and conducts transformative scenario planning to effectively manage challenges like climate-induced migration.
Cross-Sector Advocacy: ICP develops and distributes special briefings and technical support to agencies, organizations, and individuals as they negotiate responses to avoid contention and build cooperation.
