Introducing the Initiative

The Planetary Security Conference 2016 on 5 and 6 December 2016 is part of the Planetary Security Initiative launched in 2015 by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The first event was an international conference on “Planetary Security: Peace and Cooperation in Times of Climate Change and Global Environmental Challenges” on 2 and 3 November 2015 at the Peace Palace in The Hague. Now operated by a consortium of leading think tanks working on this topic, the goal of the PSI is to strengthen the knowledge-policy interface by consolidating the community of practice on planetary security.
