Climate Change and Vulnerability Conference, 13-14 February 2007
15 February 2007
Climate change causes complex security risks in every region of the world. Small island and low-lying coastal nations are among the most vulnerable.
The University for Peace (UPEACE) organised the Climate Change and Vulnerability Conference 13-14 February 2007 at the Peace Palace in The Hague, with the aim to increase the understanding of the risks of climate change and of the potential options for adaptation. Another objective was to develop partnerships among education, research and training institutions. Participants included distinguished policy makers, technical experts, scholars, and community leaders from over 30 countries.
