Environmental Conflict Management

In today's rapidly changing landscape, the environment is becoming a core theme in discussions of conflict and security. Environmental conflicts manifest as political, social, economic, ethnic, religious, or territorial. They are traditional conflicts induced by environmental degradation.

The IPTI – ECM (Environmental Conflict Management) track equips participants to create collaborative processes that effectively address conflicts that are based in or fed by environmental issues. ​

As with all IPTI programs, ECM provides the structure for participants to collaborate, discuss, and develop their own projects, to reinforce learning, and to translate knowledge into implementation and practice.
