Climate Change and Security: Examining the Role of Security Concerns in Climate Change Governance

Invitation Only

The Stanley Center will host a dinner and discussion based on the question, “How does the amplification of the concerns around the security implications of climate change link to and support global climate change governance?”

National and international leaders and decision makers have acknowledged the many security implications of climate change, which are now playing an important role in discussions related to climate change governance.

There is room to explore how the increased attention to these concerns affects ongoing negotiations and future decisions at the 21st Conference of the Parties in Paris this December as well as the implementation of an agreement beyond 2015.

The dinner will feature presentations from Ms. Pelenise Alofa, representative of the Kiribati Climate Action Network, and Ms. Hindou Oumarou Ibrahim, representative of the Indigenous Peoples of Africa Coordinating Committee.
