Climate-related conflict: arts-based mediation and recourse to redress
The COP26 side-event will start with a screening of a film titled Indlela Yokuphila" which is isiZulu for “the soul’s journey”. The film is a transdisciplinary and trans-epistemological project which brought together a range of artists, traditional healers, marine sociologists and deep-sea marine ecologists. The discussion then broadens to distill relevant lessons learnt for innovative approaches to inclusivity, human rights protection and non-discrimination in climate mitigation and adaptation projects. Although development projects are well intended, there can still be unexpected outcomes, which is why the presence and the effective operation of grievance redress mechanisms are essential. The IRM’s work will be presented around the eight UN Guiding Principles and the different avenues through which the IRM provides recourse to complaints arising from GCF projects and programmes. Additionally, the One Ocean Hub will present research data and findings on how to use art-based mediation in climate-related conflict between government and communities and the role of small-scale fishers as human rights defenders.
