Event type: 

This five day course explores this nexus of forestry and conflict management in the context of climate change. Putting people at the heart of forest management, it aims to build the capacity of forest sector stakeholders and conflict management practitioners to prevent and manage conflict in support of community forestry development.

The course will be built around the following pillars: understanding the context of conflict in community forestry in Southeast Asia; defining and analyzing conflicts and the risks for conflict from climate change, including adaptation and mitigation; development of alternative approaches to conflict management; and increasing capacity in negotiation and mediation. A wide range of methods will be used, including case studies, group discussions, role-play, expert inputs, and a field visit.
