This event, co-hosted by the German, French and Irish Embassies to the UK and adelphi, follows on from the high-level discussion at COP26 and aims to highlight how climate security risks affect the most vulnerable, using examples from a forthcoming Weathering Risk case study on Mali.

The panellists will explore how climate security risks increase the vulnerability of those already facing the double burden of climate change and conflict, and what concrete opportunities exist to promote just, equitable and sustainable peace for most vulnerable communities in the face of these risks.

This virtual dialogue, under the Weathering Risk initiative, is 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 is 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.
