On Tuesday 31 October, the Centre on Armed Groups, ODI Global Risks & Resilience and Fight for Humanity are co-organising a policy briefing on “Engaging Armed Groups on Environmental Protection and Climate Change“. The event, part of Geneva Peace Week, will delve into the potential of engaging with armed groups on climate change and environmental degradation and foster better understanding of the opportunities and complexities involved in this. It will bring together a diverse group of experts, both academics and practitioners, to explore ways for involving armed groups in tackling changes posed by climate change and environmental degradation.

The panelists are Anastasia Isyuk, Operations Manager for Climate and Environment at the ICRC; Ann-Kristin “Anki” Sjöberg, Co-Director and Founder, Fight for Humanity, and Co-Editor of the AGIL blog; Leigh Mayhew, Research Officer, ODI, Global Risks & Resilience; and Pascal Bongard, Co-Director, Centre on Armed Groups.
