Norway’s term as an elected member of the United Nations (UN) Security Council came to an end at the beginning of the year. Norway nominated four priority issues for its term, including climate security.
The Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI) is hosting a seminar to discuss what Norway achieved in this area and what lessons can be drawn from Norway’s experience. Find out more about the seminar, including the full line-up of speakers and program here.

NUPI and the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) are collaborating on the project Climate-related Peace and Security Risks (CPSR), which has supported Norway’s work during the period on the Security Council. The goal is to provide reliable, relevant, timely and actionable information and analysis on climate-related peace, security and development risks in specific countries and regions on the Security Council agenda.
The project has produced a range of climate, peace and security fact sheets on selected countries and regions, including Somalia, South Sudan, Mali, Sahel, Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Ethiopia, Colombia and the Central African Republic. You can access all fact sheets here.
