Multilateral Momentum: An Agenda for Action on Climate, Peace, and Stability
27 September, 4-5 pm CET / 10-11 am EST

This high-level session kicked off the Berlin Climate and Security Conference 2021 and set out the need and value of a shared agenda for action to tackle threats to climate security and to better coordinate efforts to ensure that the collective progress is greater than the sum of its parts.

This session took place in form of a panel discussion. Through facilitated conversation, speakers outlined the imperative of systematic and joint multilateral action on climate, peace, and stability, and set out concrete steps to advance the climate security agenda. It set in motion a discussion process to engage multilateral actors around a shared climate security agenda that will be taken up at the 2022 Munich Security Conference.
