Launch of the CGIAR Climate Security Observatory

23 May 2023, 9:30-11:00 CEST
Hybrid, Switzerland

This event will officially launch the Climate Security Observatory (CSO) platform and discuss how the evidence and tools it provides can be linked to the HDP nexus policies, programming and investments.

23 May 2023

The CSO is an online platform for stakeholder decision-making that provides access to a range of global climate and security-related analyses. The aim is to reduce or avoid the risk of climate-driven insecurity by providing accessible and actionable knowledge at multiple scales.

The CSO provides answers to four guiding questions to achieve its goal:

  1. How does climate exacerbate root causes of conflict?
  2. Where are the most vulnerable areas to climate-related insecurities and risks?
  3. Who are the groups vulnerable to climate and security risks that should be targeted?
  4. What needs to be done to break the vicious cycle between climate and conflict?
