SLU Global, SLU’s Future Platforms, and the Global Challenges University Alliance (GCUA 2030) invite everyone interested to a seminar with emphasis on the Humanitarian-Development-Peace nexus.
Title: Food security and the humanitarian-development-peace nexus
Building food security against the growing global threat of climatic shocks, conflicts, and other crises calls for deeper understanding of these interacting drivers, as well as how best to align humanitarian and development goals for coordinated action.
The Humanitarian-Development-Peace nexus offers novel opportunities in this context, but to realize this potential will take dedicated inter-sectional research, dialogue, and partnerships.
This joint SLU Climate Conversations / GCUA 2030 webinar aims to explore these issues, and in particular to:
