The event “Human Rights based Approaches and Conflict Sensitivity – Cases of Forest Monitoring and Management from Myanmar and Indonesia” aims to provide participants with the opportunity to share experiences and lessons from managing natural resources in conflict-affected settings and to discuss new research on the topic.
The webinar, which is co-hosted by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO) and the Environmental Peacebuilding Association – Forest Interest Group (FIG), will focus on the role of human rights-based approaches and conflict sensitivity in forest monitoring and management, with the objective of scaling up collective action on the issue.
Held on the occasion of Human Rights Day, the event will provide a platform for panellists and participants to share information and raise awareness about the importance of conflict and gender-sensitive approaches for development while expanding the network of people working/interested in environmental peacebuilding and conflict-sensitive development approaches.
