Toda Pacific Declaration on Climate Change, Conflict and Peace

In September 2018, the Toda Peace Institute and the National Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies (University of Otago, New Zealand) conducted a workshop on “Climate Change and Conflict in the Pacific: Prevention, Management and the Enhancement of Community Resilience” in Auckland, New Zealand.

Flowing from the debates and findings of that workshop, a draft of the ‘Toda Pacific Declaration on Climate Change, Conflict and Peace’ was elaborated and opened for comment. After an extensive and comprehensive process of discussion and several iterations of the draft, the Declaration was launched on 29 July 2019. The Declaration has been contributed to by many academics, policymakers, peacebuilding practitioners and civil society actors concerned about the challenges and potential conflict linkages posed by climatic uncertainty in the Pacific. In particular, Toda is grateful to the lead authors Volker Boege, John Campbell, Kevin Clements, Kirsten Davies and Upolu Luma Vaai.

Our wish now is that the Declaration, available at this link on the Toda website, will be widely circulated and endorsed by as many people and organisations as possible. Organisational endorsements can count the number of people represented by the organisation. Please go to the link, endorse the Declaration and circulate it widely to your networks.

Peter Matheson and I wrote this Op Ed to focus attention on the up coming election. We have plenty of pragmatic political responses to immediate problems, but little articulation of values that will enhance resilience and build robust community.https://t.co/Me2wGiEHOb


Obituary: Professor Frank Barnaby 1927-2020 https://t.co/LCu925bpmH Frank was an inspiration to many . His detailed work on nuclear weapons helped frame the anti nuclear debates of the 70's-90s. He's going to be sorely missed by me, Sverre, Ramesh and the Toda Peace Institute.
