Planetary Security Conference 2019

The fourth Planetary Security Conference (PSC) will take place on 19th and 20th February 2019 in The Hague. The PSC is the key global event on climate change and security, bringing together high-level policymakers, experts and practitioners to explore concrete actions on development, foreign and security policy to address interlinked climate-security risks in a holistic way. This edition of the PSC will focus on reviewing progress on climate-security action - you are welcome to contribute with your cases by completing our short survey.

The last PSC in December 2017 saw the launch of the Hague Declaration on Planetary Security. Signed by over 100 high level signatories and setting out a shared agenda for action on climate-security, the Declaration was the first ever call to action to address climate change and security and included the following six action areas:

  1. Institutional Home for Climate Security
  2. Enhancing Coordination on Migration
  3. Urban Resilience
  4. Joint Risk Assessment in Lake Chad
  5. Climate and Conflict Sensitive Development in Mali
  6. Support Sustainable Water Strategies in Iraq

In advance of PSC 2019, we want to review progress made on climate-security action relating to the Hague Declaration on Planetary Security. Please follow this link to complete a short survey to help us collate key areas of progress in climate-security action:

The findings of the review will be presented at PSC 2019. By following this link you can share your examples, best practices and lessons learned on climate-security actions and contribute to our collective learning process.

The Planetary Security Conference 2019 will put a thematic focus on:

  1. Contribution of land and climate policies to peace
  2. Urban risks and instability
  3. 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.
