Developing, managing, and sharing knowledge on natural resources, conflict, and peacebuilding
12 December 2017 – 13 December 2017 | The Hague, Netherlands
Planetary Security Initiative and Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs
Climate-related risks are increasingly recognised as a key factor - and at times a key driver - of human insecurity and even conflict. Over the past ten years, both our understanding and awareness of these risks and the relationship between climate change and security have increased tremendously. The topic has been on the agenda at the highest levels of international politics and diplomacy. This is why now is the time to act to reduce risks, prevent conflict and build peace. The Planetary Security Initiative (PSI) aims to spur this momentum from increasing awareness to deepening knowledge and, most importantly, to catalysing action to reduce the risks emanating from climate change and other environmental stresses.
Planetary Security Initiative
The Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs launched the PSI in 2015. Now operated by a consortium of leading think tanks, the objectives of the PSI are to:
