The CMDR COE under the auspicious of the European Security and Defence College (ESDC), with the support of the Diplomatic Institute to the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Bulgaria, organised and conducted a hybrid Climate Change and Security course.
The course took place from 08 to 11 June 2021 at the CMDR COE premises and online. It 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 aim of the course was achieved by describing global warming as a phenomenon and a security threat multiplier, discussing the main factors which affect the environment, assessing the impact of climate change on international peace and security in short, mid and long term period and considering integrated policy options to address these climate-security challenges.
Moreover, the course objectives were complemented by detailed and productive team works, which were greatly valued by the attendees.
