This virtual dialogue, under the Weathering Risk initiative, was part of a process of developing and expanding an engaged, informed and international community of practice on climate security that is better equipped to make evidence-based, risk-informed policy decisions, draw on existing best practice and to maximise cross-sectoral synergies.
This event was part of the event series “Climate Security in 3D: Diplomacy, Development, and Defence” (CS in 3D), which commenced in February 2021.The CS in 3D dialogues so far have illustrated how the impacts of climate change on peace and security fall across different sectoral mandates and outlined areas for cross-sectoral and multilateral collaboration.
