Ecological Peace in the Middle East: #Doable?!
Jordan, Palestine and Israel are strongly divided on political and religious issues, however when it comes to climate risks, they have equal problems and they aim to solve this together. Since 2018 the call for action on climate change worldwide increased to a significant level. In the Middle East the most visual climate risks are related to water: the lower Jordan River and the Dead Sea are shared environmental heritages of the three countries, but the water level is shrinking to alarmingly low levels.
Climate Security at London Climate Action Week
At the inaugural London Climate Action Week from 1-8 July, climate security will once again be high on the agenda. The Dutch Embassy in the UK, in partnership with the Planetary Security Initiative and E3G, will host leading defense, development and diplomacy actors alongside journalists, students, and the general public via live stream. In a critical year for climate action – with further direct action almost as certain as the UN Secretary General’s Climate Action Summit in September – the event is an opportunity to share how far the British and Dutch climate resilience and security agendas have advanced, and how much further there is to go, together.
Germany calls for Action in Climate Security
On 4 June German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas hosted seven foreign ministers, 19 ambassadors, several other ministers and more than 200 experts and civil society representatives at the Berlin Climate and Security Conference. The Climate Security Nexus was the central theme discussed with Maas proclaiming climate action as Germanys new foreign policy imperative, as the security implications of its effects can already be seen across the globe.
