Climate-related security risks are transboundary. Thus, many national actors are relying on international and regional organisations to coordinate and solutions to address the risks. The EU has acknowledged climate as a security concern already in the beginning of XXI century. NATO recognises climate change as an ‘overarching challenge of our time’ that will ‘measurably’ increase the risks to security and ‘worsen as the world warms further’. In December 2021, the OSCE adopted a ministerial decision on strengthening co-operation to address the challenges caused by climate change.
Today, most of the effects of climate change are still more visible in countries of Global South, which exacerbate or overlaps with existing insecurities.
Do international organisations have an agreement and a solution for this?
Should and can climate security lead towards more inter-institutional cooperation?
Is gender aspect mainstreamed in those solutions?
This and many more questions WIIS Brussels will discuss with our speakers on 6 June at 18:30, to Friends of Europe office in Brussels (De Meeûssquare 5/6, 1000 Brussels -Treesquare room).
