Addressing global challenges: NATO′s approach to climate changeDate: (17-11-2021)
City: Sofia
Location: CMDR COE

This event is co-sponsored by NATO’s Public Diplomacy Division


The 2021 Brussels Summit Communiqué describes climate change as one of the defining challenges to global peace and security. Recognising the impacts of climate change on a multiplicity of aspects to include environmental and human security, particularly societal resilience, and the planning and conduct of operations, NATO member countries have committed to reducing the negative impact of different activities on the environment.


The 2021 Climate Change and Security Agenda applies a 360-degree approach to the subject-matter and encompasses measures to increase both NATO’s and Allies’ awareness of the impact of climate change on security, along with developing clear adaptation and mitigation measures, and enhanced outreach, while ensuring a credible deterrence and defense posture.


In line with NATO’s approach to climate change, the Sofia Security Forum, the NATO CMDR COE and the NATO Public Diplomacy Division are organising a conference on Addressing global challenges: NATO′s approach to climate change.


The Conference will bring together civilian and military executives, climate and security experts, representatives from non-governmental organisations, think-tanks, the academia and the media for a forward-looking discussion on peace and security in a climate disturbed environment.   


The event will take place online on 17 November 2021 and will be live-streamed on the CMDR COE YouTube channel.
