Convendum, Kungsgatan 9, Stockholm


The world is experiencing a set of acute environmental crises as part of a generally darkening security horizon—which, when taken together, are creating a new era of risk. Climate change, biodiversity loss, pollution and resource scarcity are already impacting every part of the world; while the breakdown of arms control regimes, the doubling of armed conflict and conflict-related deaths in the past 10 years, and Russia’s war in Ukraine are exacerbating security concerns.

Starting with a keynote speech by SIPRI Director Dan Smith, the panel discussed this complex security situation, what we are missing and how to go forward.
