THEORY OF CHANGE
If peacebuilding problem-solving methods are applied in parallel with rigorous research on the changing climate, then decision makers at all scales are better equipped to respond to climate crises, reduce friction, and build social cohesion through locally-based and culturally-appropriate responses.
Climate and peace are integrated collaborative fields helping to advance a just and sustainable peace for thriving, cohesive communities.
Innovative, effective, and recognized models at the intersection of the fields of climate and peace thrive in Hawaiʻi and the Pacific-Asia region.
What forces enable or inhibit the integration of the climate and peace fields in Hawaiʻi, the Pacific-Asia region, and beyond?
The Institute for Climate and Peace advances peaceful, climate-conscious futures by harnessing the inherent wisdom, power, ingenuity, and voices of the communities that we serve. We transcend generational, ideological, and social divides to develop equitable, pragmatic, and innovative pathways to our ideal futures. We work with communities to build climate-resilient peace and to leverage peacebuilding methods to generate just and effective climate solutions through process based, data-driven, community-led strategies.
