SIPRI Searchlight: Managing the risks posed by climate change—a role for the UN



This new SIPRI Searchlight film takes an in depth look at what key stakeholders think about the idea of an institutional home for climate change at the United Nations.


Overall—the film finds—stakeholders do not want to create parallel institutions at the UN, but they are supportive of a coordinating mechanism which will: facilitate speedy analysis of climate related security risks; support better coordination of different actors within and connected to the UN system. And, ultimately, a UN security council which is fit to deal with the complex, overlapping security risks of our time.


A full list of participants is available on the YouTube page.
