New video on faith and natural resource management – presented at the Geneva Peace Week 2021 – by the PaRD Health and Water, Environment and Climate Action work-streams.
Climate change is a threat multiplier, disproportionately affecting those already living in fragile and conflict-affected contexts, making climate change also a justice issue. It represents the interdependence of human rights, gender equality, peacebuilding, and climate action.
Faith-based work has a significant role to play in building peace and addressing climate change. Religious and faith actors can provide the social and spiritual support to increase resilience in communities affected by the double hardship of climate change and conflicts, supporting communities to adapt to climate change and advocating for climate-sensitive ways of life.
