Madrid, Spain

Climate change is increasingly shaping international security. The session aims at making the COP community aware of the climate-security nexus and focuses on a debate on integrated risk analysis, mitigation and management.

This side event will take stock of progress made at the international level on climate, peace and security.  It will discuss potential pathways for action how to deal with climate-security risks in Latin America and beyond - this includes the UN Security Council as one forum among others.

The side event will take place on 11 December 2019 between 15:30-17:00 in the German Pavilion.
