VISION | OBJECTIFS

La vie et les moyens de subsistance des millions de personnes à travers le monde sont de plus en plus menacés par un ensemble de risques (environnementaux/climatiques, économiques, géopolitiques, sociétaux et technologiques) à caractère complexe, interconnecté et multidimensionnel. Les impacts de tels risques ne cessent de révéler nos vulnérabilités partagées et de confirmer que les insécurités sont devenues répandues, transversales et associées aux crises inextricables et interdépendantes. De plus, il 

est progressivement perçu que ces impacts se feront sentir, non seulement dans l'immédiat par les régions et les générations touchées, mais aussi à travers la communauté internationale et par les générations futures. Le Congrès International HES2015 - comme 4e édition d'un forum scientifique et politique conjointement organisé par le Programme Environnement & Sécurité Humaine (EHSP) du NRCS et de nombreux partenaires nationaux et internationaux - est l'occasion à la veille de la COP21 pour approfondir le débat sur les implications sécuritaires des risques globaux, notamment les risques environnementaux et climatiques. L'approche consiste à interroger la capacité des référentiels théoriques, normatifs, politiques et technologies existants de réduire la vulnérabilité des systèmes socio-écologiques et d'assurer leur sécurité et durabilité. Ce meeting est une opportunité pour partager les résultats des recherches et expériences pertinentes, et pour explorer les options innovantes susceptibles de guider les processus de changement. En plus des possibilités de réseautage, l'approche du Congrès est à la fois multi et inter-disciplinaire et hautement pertinente pour les processus décisionnels à tous les niveaux et sphères de gouvernance.


THÈMES CLÉS DU HES2015
L'approche du Congrès couvrent quatre thématiques inter-reliées et complémentaires dans le cadre duquel les différents panels seront conçus. Cela permettra un échange interdisciplinaire et innovant entre des participants de différents horizons :

Comprendre les vulnérabilités des sécurités humaines et environnementales aux risques globaux émergents.

 

Gestion des impacts des risques globaux sur les sécurités humaines et environnementales:  Identification des contraintes et opportunités.

 

Ruptures et innovations à entreprendre pour gérer les risques globaux dans une perspective sécuritaire tout en renforçant la coviabilité des systèmes socio-écologiques.

 

Innovations à entreprendre dans le domaine de la gouvernance et des politiques pour une gestion efficace des risques globaux dans une perspective sécuritaire. CALENDRIER & DATES CLÉS

Call for Proposals - International Conference (HES2015) : Human and Environmental Security in the Era of Global Risks, November 25-27, 2015 | Agadir, Morocco

Call for Proposals - International Conference (HES2015) : Human and Environmental Security in the Era of Global Risks, November 25-27, 2015 | Agadir, Morocco | Environmental Change and Human security | Scoop.it

BACKGROUND

 

Lives and livelihoods of millions of people worldwide, especially in the Global South, are being severely threatened by numerous global environmental/climate, economic, geopolitical, societal and technological risks whose impacts reveal our shared vulnerabilities and heighten the recognition that insecurities are widespread, cross-cutting, and increasingly associated to intractable and interrelated crises. Also, it’s being gradually perceived that these impacts will be felt not just in the immediate region and by affected generations, but also across the international community and by future generations.

 

HES2015 — as the 4th edition of a science-policy forum bi-annually organized by the Environment & Security Program (ESP) of the NRCS with many national and international partners — is an opportunity to deepen the debate about the security implications of global risks. The approach consists of questioning the ability of existing concepts, technologies and regulatory frameworks to accurately deal with emerging risks to human and environmental securities and help acting in the direction of effectively managing their impacts. Speakers from different perspectives will be provided with the opportunity to share their relevant research, insights, and successful practices, and furthermore explore innovative options to guide future processes of change. In addition to networking opportunities, the Conference key topics are multidisciplinary and highly relevant to policy-making processes in all governance levels and spheres.


HES2015 Key Topics
The conference will cover a range of issues which can be presented in four key themes across which different sessions will be formed to addressing related topics in an innovative and interdisciplinary manner:
- Understanding the vulnerability of human and environmental securities to emerging global risks
- Identification of constraints and opportunities in addressing global risks' impacts on environmental and human securities
- Shifts to be made to deal with global risks from a security perspective while fostering the co-viability of human-ecological systems
- Governance and policy innovations to manage global risks from a human-environmental security perspective

KEY DATES
July 30, Deadline for session proposals
August 15, Notification of accepted sessions
August 30, Deadline for abstract submission
September 15, Notification of accepted abstracts
August 15, Early-bird registration open
October 30, Deadline for early-bird registration

Private Property is Not the Right Solution for the Natural Commons

Private Property is Not the Right Solution for the Natural Commons | Environmental Change and Human security | Scoop.it

Excerpted from a stirring speech by Maude Barlow, an advocate of commons-oriented approaches to natural resource issues. In this speech, she strongly stresses the link between the environmental crisis and social justice, and calls for an end to “silo thinking” on that issue. When I co-organized the International Commons Conference last October in Berlin, Maude Barlow refused to attend a previously agreed on panel on the relationship and mutual enrichment of the digital commons with the natural commons. We hope that in the future, that silo too will be broken! Digital commons and their information and knowledge sharing, as well as the sustainability aspects of shared design when coupled with relocalized and distributed ‘making’, has many synergies with the preservation of the natural commons, at least that is our conviction.

Finland adopts human rights and human security-centered policy

Finland adopts human rights and human security-centered policy | Environmental Change and Human security | Scoop.it

On 16 February 2012, Finland’s parliament approved human rights and human security-centered international development cooperation policy. Its overarching themes are: (a) poverty reduction, (b) tackling the problems of inequality and (c) promotion of human rights.

Mohamed Behnassi's insight:

Human security concept is progressively gaining political spheres' interest. This approach deserves to be explored by every country regardless of its status. However, for developed nations, the concept adds new responsibilities towards developing ones. This explains why this concept is generally still rejected by superpowers.

Le concept de la sécurité humaine gagne progressivement l'intérêt des sphères politiques. Cette approche mérite d'être explorée par tous les pays, indépendamment de leur statut. Cependant, pour les pays développés, le concept ajoute de nouvelles responsabilités à l'égard de ceux en développement. Cela explique pourquoi ce concept est encore rejeté par la plupart des superpuissances.
