The COP25 Climate Change Conference is starting in Madrid today. The international community will discuss the further implementation of the Paris Climate Agreement in the Spanish capital. Germany intends to assume a leading role in this regard.
In December 1959, the signatory States to the Antarctic Treaty agreed on a milestone in the multilateral world order: in the interest of all mankind, the “seventh continent” was forever to be used exclusively for peaceful purposes and scientific investigation.
Municipalities, companies and research institutions from both countries are working together to develop sustainable solutions for the energy supply in the German-Dutch border Region.
Climate change now poses a risk to peace and security. Climate policy is therefore no longer just about environmental policy. It must also play a role in foreign policy.
Global environmental change is having an impact on the health of many people around the world. Experts are convening at a conference at the Federal Foreign Office to discuss the international security implications of this development, as well as possible mitigation strategies.
