A New Way Forward

The effects of climate change are more complex than just a simple change of temperature. Globally, climate change is already devastating communities - threatening food security, intensifying weather events, and forcing the migration of thousands of individuals in search of a safe and prosperous future. The complexity, urgency, and gravity of these new problems require innovative, equitable, and multi-sectoral ways of thinking. By coupling peacebuilding problem-solving methods with rigorous climate change research and resilience strategies, we equip decision makers at all scales with the tools needed to respond to the climate crisis, reduce social friction, and build social cohesion through locally-based and culturally-appropriate responses.
