The Geneva Water Hub and the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Republic of Slovenia have joined forces to develop a training course on “Environmental Peacebuilding” which will take place in Ljubljana.

In the last decade, environmental peacebuilding has emerged as a multidisciplinary approach that recognises the crucial role of the environment and natural resources throughout the conflict life-cycle.

This course aims to address the theoretical foundations, legal frameworks, and challenges associated with environmental peacebuilding, taking into account recent legal developments.
