In January 2019, the Dominican Republic Presidency of the Security Council held the fourth high-level open debate on the impacts of climate-related disasters on international peace and security, which saw an unprecedented number of member states take the floor, many at ministerial level. At this meeting, UN Under-Secretary-General for Political and Peacebuilding Affairs, Rosemary DiCarlo, insisted on the need to focus on three key areas:

  • Developing stronger analytical capacity with integrated risk assessment frameworks.
  • Collecting a stronger evidence base, so that good practices on climate risk prevention and management can be replicated in the field.
  • Building and reinforcing partnerships to leverage existing capacities within and outside the UN system.
