The conference is for policymakers, experts and practitioners from the diplomacy, defence and development sector. It has become the prime high-level meeting place to address how our planet can become more peaceful by tackling security risks emanating from climate change and other environmental stresses.
The conference will put a thematic focus on:
- Contribution of land and climate policies to peace;
- Urban risks and instability;
- Geopolitics of energy transition.
Iraq, Lake Chad, Mali and the Caribbean Small Island Developing States will be spotlight regions to illustrate possible ways forward in addressing these themes.
Underpinning the conference will be the Hague Declaration on Planetary Security. There will be a critical review of progress on the six objectives of the Agenda for Action set out in the Declaration. Throughout the conference, commitments and practical measures to alleviate climate-related security risks will be garnered to catalyse action on the ground and seek more relevant policy adjustments in 2019.
