Natural resources such as water, soil and biodiversity are under increasing stress. Human activity is the main cause of this global crisis affecting everybody, but most particularly the vulnerable groups of our societies. The Paris Agreement and the Global Agenda 2030, among other legal instruments, are a testimony to the increasing awareness of governments and other international actors that environmental issues should be an integral part of addressing larger global challenges. Current and future decision makers need an understanding of the environment-security nexus, tools to come up with and implement new solutions, and use different aspects of environmental cooperation as an instrument for peace and security.
This course target audience are environment and security professionals from public and private sectors.
• civil servants;
• private sector representatives;
• International organisations
