Berlin Climate and Security Conference 2023

6 October 2023
Berlin and online

Since its inaugural edition in 2019, the Berlin Climate and Security Conference (BCSC) has become the global forum connecting important stakeholders working to better address the impacts of climate change on international peace and security through diplomacy, development and defence approaches.

This fifth edition of BCSC is entitled Building a Climate for Peace and will convene policy makers, decision makers, and climate security experts from across the world. With no time to lose to accelerate climate action ahead of COP28, the conference will focus on three strategic goals to ensure that climate action and sustainable peace go hand in hand:

  • Solutions for fragile contexts: Identifying ways to promote more accessible and conflict sensitive climate solutions (including finance) for fragile and conflict-affected communities in the lead up to COP 28 and beyond;
  • Tools and knowledge: Spotlighting tools, resources, and capacities to advance integration of climate and conflict sensitive analysis and policies into operations and programming on the ground;
  • Incentives: Connecting people, knowledge and ideas across sectors, regions and disciplines to strengthen synergies between mutual and multilateral approaches and initiatives.

The in-person segment of BCSC will take place in Berlin at the German Federal Foreign Office, by invitation only. The dates of the online segment are to be announced.
