Berlin Climate and Security Conference 2023: Event Summary

BCSC 2023: Conference Summary

To enable broad and global participation, as well as additional in-depth exploration of critical issues, the follow-up digital segment (on the following three Mondays throughout October) consisted of partner-run deep-dive sessions. The full programme is available here.

With 11 in-person sessions, the conference brought together a diverse range of political actors, climate security experts, international organisations and practitioners. The BCSC 2023 programme aimed to focus on new and emerging issues and debates, with the three strategic goals of:

  • 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.
