We want to highlight the relevance of applying Rights-Based Approach and the three development perspectives to achieve democracy and universal human rights. Also, promote exchange and knowledge spaces of working with these perspectives at ForumCiv, its members and partners, celebrating our achievements so far.

Workshop with Sida


Facilitated by Ingela Andersson, Sida's policy Specialist Peace and Security. She shares Sida's experiences and challenges in integrating conflict sensitivity and Do-No-Harm in programmes.

Please note that slides 14-17 are a draft idea for Sida's updated guidance on conflict sensitivity in contribution management. It should not yet be referenced and shared broadly. Sida has published similar guidance here in its Peace and Conflict Toolbox  and these documents can still be used until the update is ready.

Creating an Environment of Peace: Ensuring a just and peaceful transition


Organizer: ForumCiv and SIRPI

In this webinar researchers from the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) will present findings from their recently published Environment of Peace report. The report explores the complex ways in which environmental degradation and climate change interact with peace and security, creating a new era of risk. 

This webinar will focus on the need for a just and peaceful transition to a green economy. It will explore how environmental policies and climate action, if not carried out in a thoughtful and inclusive manner, can cause, or exacerbate conflict. It will also showcase ways in which environmental action can provide an opportunity to build and nurture peace. 


  • Claire McAllister, Project Lead, Environment of Peace initiative at Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI)
  • Emilie Broek, Research Assistant, Climate Change and Risk Programme at Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI)
