The Role of Government in Preventing the Escalation of Conflict in Mining, Oil and Gas English session: 21 February / 9:00 EST / NY Spanish session: 22 February / 9:00 EST / NY The webinar will explore the role and responsibility of government in extractive conflicts. The webinar will focus on how governments can help prevent the escalation of conflict related to mining, oil and gas, and transform socio-environmental conflict into opportunities for development. Participants will come away from this webinar with a better understanding of the root causes, drivers and pathways of conflict in the mining, oil and gas sectors. We will share findings from a new study on this topic, and also examine two cases in Latin America: one from Colombia and one from Peru. Governments in these countries took specific approaches to build stronger institutional capacity to prevent the escalation of conflict and address systemic causes. These cases will be used as a basis for discussion and sharing of experiences. Social and Environmental Safeguards, and Grievance Mechanisms as Tools to Prevent Conflict in the Extractive Sector English session: 27 March / 9:00 EST / NY Spanish session: 28 March / 9:00 EST / NY This webinar will focus on the evolving landscape of social and environmental safeguards, along with accountability mechanisms, as tools to prevent conflict and contribute to sustainable development in the extractive sector. This webinar will cover UNDPís own approach to Social and Environmental Safeguards and its Stakeholder Response Mechanism. In addition, the webinar will feature an example of a case study brought through an accountability mechanism, highlighting challenges, opportunities and lessons for preventing future harms.
