"WS 2.1.4 Climate Conscious Futures by the Institute for Climate and Peace"
Content, Program, Organization
The Institute for Climate and Peace advances peaceful, climate-resilient futures by harnessing the inherent wisdom, power, ingenuity, and voices of the communities that we serve.
The Institute for Climate and Peace is a 501(c)(3) organization based out of Honolulu, Hawaiʻi. ICP was created in response to the 21st century’s increasing threat to the accomplishment of humanity’s fundamental goal: peace. Global climate change, dwindling biodiversity, and fickle water resources are among the chief environmental challenges that will increasingly undermine peace building efforts—from the community level to the global arena. ICP believes that when resources are stable and relationships are sound, we are poised for peace. We are, however, entering an era in which our environment and uncertain resource supplies will require stronger bonds between communities and common understandings of climate risks. This work is especially relevant to the United States as well as the Pacific-Asia region, for which climate forecasts demonstrate novel and disproportionate impacts.
