Question for written answer E-000974-19
to the Commission
Rule 130
Louis Michel (ALDE)

 Subject:  Climate change
 Answer in writing 

The Foreign Affairs Council stressed this week that climate change poses a direct threat to peace and security at the global level.

Climate change is a ‘threat’ that has multiplier effects, threatening stability, peace and security and potentially compromising the achievement of sustainable development goals.

As has been repeatedly pointed out, the world is not acting fast enough to prevent irreversible and catastrophic climate change.

What actions will the Commission take to ensure that conflict prevention instruments take into account security issues relating to the adverse effects of climate change and environmental risk factors?
