2030 Climate Change: Reaching Targets to protect our Planet
Time & Location
About the Event
In recent years, climate change and its implications on states’ and non-state actors’ desire to sustain peace have rightly received more attention in the public debate. It is well recognized that with climate change, governments and political stakeholders are to deal with a new set of scenarios and risks that go beyond the commonplace perceptions of security.
The latest science in the field is unequivocally clear, we are approaching the limits of the planet faster than previously thought. Without deep and rapid change, an unprecedented level of material disruption is expected in Europe throughout this century. The costs for annual damages from coastal floods could be as high as €1 trillion per year affecting over 3.5 million people, agricultural yields could decline by up to 20%, we have already seen land being burnt by forest fires and almost one in two Europeans could be affected by water scarcity.
