Building on previous the Peacebuilding Commission (PBC) engagements on peacebuilding in the Pacific, and following a screening of Sea of Islands, the meeting will analyse the implications of climate change for peacebuilding and sustaining peace in the Pacific. It will focus on national and regional efforts that require further support to address critical gaps and mitigate the risks that climate change poses to stability and human security in the region.

Guiding questions

1. How is climate change affecting the environment for peacebuilding in the Pacific region. What are the peacebuilding priorities in the Pacific that require attention in view of the climate crisis and its potential socioeconomic implications?

2. What international support is required to assist countries in the Pacific to mitigate the impact of climate change on peacebuilding gains, and support peace and sustainable development in the region?

3. How can conflict- and gender sensitive responses to climate change, led by governments and affected communities, be supported by the UN system and international partners, including international financial institutions, regional and sub-regional organizations, and including civil society?
