CMDR COE conducted a resident Climate Change and Security CourseDate: (30-04-2019)
After the pilot iteration last year, the CMDR COE, under the auspices of the European Security and Defence College (ESDC) and with the support of the Bulgarian Diplomatic Institute organised and conducted Climate Change and Security course.
The event took place on 23 - 25 April 2019 at the newly renovated CMDR COE premises and offered an ample opportunity for acquiring new knowledge and for constructive exchange of good practices.
A diverse group of representatives from NATO Allies, the Istanbul Cooperation Initiative and Partners Across the Globe, who work on climate change mainstreaming policy development and implementation at the national or regional, and international levels, as well as such involved in civilian protection, disaster protection and humanitarian assistance capacity building took part in the course.
The main topics discussed included global warming as a phenomenon and a security threat multiplier, the impact of climate change on international peace and security, and the necessity of integrated policy options to address these climate-security challenges.
A unique component of the course was the conduct of a specialised Climate Change Strategic Game.
The European Security and Defence College (ESDC) had the honour of co-organising the course on Disaster Relief in CSDP Context, together with the Crisis Management and Disaster Response Centre of Excellence, the Diplomatic Institute to the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Bulgaria and the Romanian National College of Home Affairs.» read more
