#E3 – Multilateral cooperation in addressing the climate’s impact on security. Where do we stand?

In this miniseries, WIIS Brussels invites women to share their experience and expertise on the multi-dimension of the climate security.

In this third episode of the series, Sabrine Dao and Sofiia Shevchuk have invited Mariko Peters, Senior Peace and Conflict Adviser at the European External Action Service, Olivia Lazard, visiting scholar at Carnegie Europe, and Anniek Barnhoorn, Research Assistant with SIPRI’s Climate Change and Risk Programme.

In this episode, our speakers come not only from different generations but also from diverse workplaces and backgrounds to provide a current state of affairs and prospects on the role of such institutions as the EU, OSCE and UN in climate security. Are peace, climate and security connected? Can multilateralism solve both climate change and security threats? Which institution is the most effective these days in tackling climate change?
