Launch of the Hague Declaration progress-tracking website

The last Planetary Security Conference in December 2017 saw the launch of the Hague Declaration on Planetary Security. Endorsed by over 100 high-level signatories and setting out a shared agenda for action on climate-security, the Declaration was the first-ever call to action to address climate change and security and includes the following six action areas:

    • Creating an Institutional Home for Climate Security
    • Coordinating Migration and Climate Change Responses
    • Promoting Urban Resilience
    • Supporting Joint Risk Assessment in Lake Chad
    • Strengthening Climate- and Conflict-Sensitive Development in Mali
    • Supporting Sustainable Water Strategies in Iraq

Ahead of this year’s Planetary Security Conference on 19 and 20 February 2019, we reviewed progress made on climate-security action relating to the Hague Declaration on Planetary Security.  The results of the review are presented on this website. A briefing note summarising key results can be downloaded here

The website features informative videos, relevant documents and information on the measures taken to address interlinked climate-security risks in each of the action areas. The platform presents examples of workable approaches to alleviate security risks that emanate from climate change.

If you would like to share further examples, best practice and lessons learned on climate-security actions, please get in touch with us before 15 March 2019.
