Stockholm Dialogue On the Nexus between Human Rights, Environmental Sustainability, and Conflict Prevention

Background

The 2030 Agenda asks the global community to respond to a wide range of complex and multidimensional development challenges. This requires a paradigm shift supported by all actors, including governments, the UN System, business, and civil society, to work towards more “integrated approaches” that go beyond sectoral and thematic silo-thinking.

There is a need, however, to better understand what constitutes an “integrated approach”; how these can be operationalized in the UN system, and adapted in practice at the country level; and how to structure the partnerships and funding mechanisms that underpin successful integration.

This one-day Dialogue will seek to enhance our understanding of integrated approaches needed to manage natural resources for more sustainable and peaceful outcomes. We will explore how to tackle risks and opportunities in a manner that balances social, environmental, economic, human rights, and peace concerns and priorities, using the extractive sector as an example.

Bringing together a range of perspectives from governments, the UN system, civil society and research institutions, we aim to:

  • Create a platform for learning and sharing knowledge by presenting examples of integrated approaches in different geographical and institutional contexts
  • Distill good practices and lessons that can inform programming in these areas; and
  • Explore principles and strategies for promoting strategic and operational partnerships to tackle multi-dimensional challenges related to natural resource management. Throughout these discussions, special consideration will be given to the needs, knowledge, roles and rights of women and youth in our efforts to achieve the SDGs and sustain peace.
