United Nations Association of Australia - Victoria Division
19 November 2020
5:50pm to 7:00pm Australian Eastern Standard Time
You are invited to join the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) and the United Nations Association of Australia (UNAA) - Victoria Division to discuss the findings from the Ecological Threat Register.
To commemorate Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 16 – Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions – and SDG 13 – Climate Action, the UNAA Victorian Young Professionals are partnering with the IEP to deliver a webinar on Thursday 17th November.
This webinar will uncover some of the global hotspots exposed to higher risk of ecological events, the trends of ecological threats across regions and countries, and the resilience of countries from a positive peace and systems theory perspective. We will look at the ecological threats Australia is exposed to, such as the Australian bushfire crisis, and discuss the country's capability to recover and how that relates to its ranking in the Positive Peace Index. This webinar will explore the importance of peace and how it is related to achieving SDG 13 - Climate Action.
