Climate Security Partnerships for Peace? How UN, EU, and AU Could Align Efforts and Missions: The Case of Somalia
5 October, 3-4 pm CET / 9-10am EST

Climate and Environmental Security are becoming an important issue for peace operations – both related to mandate delivery, as well as to the ecological footprint of missions. Currently, the EU and the UN are working on a new joint guidance for their missions, which will include climate security and seeks to establish a link to AU missions. Moreover, missions also need to foster partnerships with local actors on climate and environmental issues. In this session, we looked at recent experiences and concrete examples from Somalia where UN, EU, and the AU are running missions in parallel.
