Arria-Formula meeting on Climate, Peace and Security
"The effects of climate change influence the success of all our peace efforts. From the prevention of conflict to transitions out of conflict, including the transitioning of UN peacekeeping and political missions."
"Broadening the Security Council's awareness of how climate, security and peacebuilding interact would offer a basis for it to embrace additional tools and entry points to better achieve its mandate. It would highlight that peace and sustainable environmental practices at the local, national, and global levels are mutually reinforcing. Kenya and Norway, together with Albania, France, Gabon, Ghana, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Malta, Mozambique, Nauru, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and the United States, therefore propose to build on our previous discussions, open debates, and Arria-formula meetings to have a discussion on Climate, Peace, and Security (CPS)."
