Legal frameworks are pivotal to using the environment in service of peacebuilding. International legal mechanisms play a crucial role in mitigating risks and preventing the recurrence of armed conflict. Additionally, they provide avenues for engagement, dialogue, environmental conservation, and the equitable sharing of benefits. The effective application of legal mechanisms in environmental peacebuilding is a challenging and complex process. Join MEDRC in discussion as a panel of expert speakers share insights from theory and practice.
