Between 2006-2012, I was involved in the first military conferences on the impact of climate change on conflict and human security. I was part of high-level military discussions about the role of disinformation related to climate change science, as well as how conflict prevention and mitigation processes could help to prevent climate impacts on security.
Through this work, I collaborated with the Woodrow Wilson Center’s Environmental Change and Security Program, National Geographic, the Center for Climate and Security, the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies and dozens of other environmental organizations working on peacebuilding.
In 2017, I spent three months researching environmental peacebuilding initiatives in the West Bank, Jordan and Israel and spent a month at the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies.
Currently, I am working on a report blending research on inclusive peace process design and the challenges of the climate crisis, particularly mass migration and climate sensitive city policies.
