Security Days: Climate Change and Security - Unprecedented impacts, unpredictable risks

28 October 2015
Vienna, Hofburg Congress Center

This OSCE Security Days event will provide a forum to discuss the security risks associated with climate change as well as the security benefits of climate change mitigation and adaptation. It will also identify successful approaches to integrating security considerations into climate change policies.

Taking place in the run-up to the 21st session of the Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC in Paris, this OSCE Security Days will bring together senior representatives of governments, regional and international organizations, NGOs, academia, philanthropy, business and entrepreneurs for an open, interactive discussion on one of the most critical challenges of our time. It is also intended to promote opportunities for co-operation in addressing security risks related to climate change and to generate recommendations for conflict prevention and for minimizing security risks of climate change, particularly in the OSCE region.
