What is the Hague Declaration on Planetary Security?
The third Planetary Security Conference in December 2017 called for a move from ‘analysis to action’, resulting in the launch of the Hague Declaration on Planetary Security.

- Creating an institutional home for climate security,

- Joint risk assessment in Lake Chad,
- Climate and conflict sensitive development in Mali, and
