Time to Reconsider Voting at Climate Negotiations

15 février 2021

Innovative and creative solutions are needed to tackle the climate emergency. The current consensus-based decision-making process at international climate negotiations is unable to catalyze sufficient climate action. It is time to reform the decision-making process and reconsider adopting more efficient procedural options such as smart voting.

Afghan Women: Modernizing Global Practices of Peacebuilding?

15 janvier 2021

Afghanistan is at a crossroads. Will Afghan women modernize global practices of peacebuilding or are the negotiations sticking to the traditional male-dominated path merely focused on military security? The road towards sustainable peace requires solidarity networks and inclusiveness for marginalized groups, especially women.

A Future-proof Food System is Plant-based

25 novembre 2020

The way we eat – especially in the Global North – harms human and planetary health. Diseases caused by animal-based diets are on the rise, while 690 million people worldwide suffer from hunger. The solution to a healthier, more climate-friendly, and resilient food system are plant-based diets.

Children – A Blind Spot of Peace and Security

18 novembre 2020 Paix et sécurité

Children dominate the visual representation of conflict in the media, but they are rarely consulted in conflict resolution and peacebuilding. Since children play vital roles in conflicts and determine the chances for sustained peace in the long-term, successful peacebuilding should address their post-conflict needs. The UN, local, and international actors should give children a voice and meaningful ways to participate in the process.

Governments have an important role to play in ensuring that climate targets, extra-financial disclosure, and minimum energy performance standards are implemented and made mandatory for the private sector.
