Understanding and Mitigating Ecological Threats
Join the Institute for Economics and Peace as we discuss trends in environmental security and international organisations building resilience to face future challenges.
Register for a webinar discussion on the environmental threats facing the world today and in the future.
Recently released research from the Institute for Economics and Peace (IEP) shows both exposure to risk, and the ability of nations and their resilience to manage major impacts of ecological problems and disasters.
The Ecological Threat Register (ETR) highlights the global hotspots that are exposed to higher risk of ecological events, and measures ecological threats countries are projected to face between now and 2050.
In this webinar, Serge Stroobants, IEP’s Director of Europe and MENA Region, will be joined by senior representatives from the European Union, the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe and the International Organisation for Migration.
Join us as we discuss trends in environmental security and the activities of international organisations aimed at building resilience and mitigating the challenges ahead.
