Climate, Water and migration brainstorming At Hague Roundtable
The theme of the meeting was the impact of climate, water and migration on regional stability. Participants shared their concerns and ideas on issues including too much water (flooding and sea level rise), too little water (droughts with rising temperatures), and potential mass migration and conflict. GMACCC Chairman, Major General (Ret.) A N M Muniruzzaman of Bangladesh (on screen in photo) addressed the meeting via Skype to call for global action in addressing Bangladesh’s immediate climate impact challenges that can have regional consequences.
20 countries and 14 organizations were represented at the 21 Sept. event that was hosted by IHE Delft Institute for Water Education. For more information, visit: www.un-ihe.org/news/ihe-delft-hosts-6th-roundtable-climate-security
