The Institute for Environmental Security held its third Hague Roundtable on Climate and Security at the Embassy of Germany to the Netherlands on 26 April. Ambassadors and representatives from more than a dozen countries and organisations participated in the discussion that focused on raising engagement in planning for climate risks to natural resources, potential conflict and stability.
Featured presentations included UNESCO-IHE Water Education Institute on coastal climate risk models and the Embassy of Sudan on climate challenges and options in Sudan. Preparations for the 2016 Planetary Security Conference in The Hague and COP 22 in Marrakesh were addressed by representatives of the Netherlands and Morocco respectively.
The Climate Roundtable enables a continuing international dialogue to support actions that contribute to the success of major climate conferences and other stakeholder initiatives. A report on the third Roundtable will be published in the coming weeks, and the fourth meeting is expected in mid-2016 at a location to be announced.
