Organised as part of the European Security and Defence College (ESDC), the course entitled "Climate Change and Security" began today in Brussels with two face-to-face round tables on the vulnerability of states to global warming and the policies put in place to respond to it.

A number of high-level academic experts and participants gave their analyses of future scenarios relating to climate change: Prof. Andreas Fischlin (IPCC), Dr. Lisa Schipper (University of Oxford), Paul Watkinson, head of the COP21 negotiations technical team and former chairman of the SBSTA/UNFCCC, Cyril Loisel, expert with the European Commission's DG CLIMA.

Prepared and run by the IHEDN's Department of Europe and International Affairs (DEAI), and in partnership with the German think-tank adelphi, this session adopts an approach that is both theoretical and practical: round tables and innovative interactive exercises (using IT tools to ensure social distancing).
