A major new report - Environment of Peace - provides the most comprehensive account to date of how different aspects of environmental crises are interacting with today’s darkening security horizon and phenomena such as the fallout of the Covid-19 pandemic to generate new forms of compound, cascading and emergent risk. It also offers governments and other decision-making bodies recommendations for action, and principles to guide them.
The report will be launched in Norway on 9 June 2022 at NUPI from 09:00-10:30, with a light breakfast served from 0830. The report will be launched by State Secretary for Foreign Affairs, Henrik Thune and former Swedish Foreign Minister and European Commissioner for the Environment, Margot Wallström.
Wallström is the chair of the international panel of experts that oversaw the drafting of the report by an international team of experts coordinated by SIPRI. NUPI’s director, Ulf Sverdrup, is a member of the international panel and the report was co-authored by NUPI’s Cedric de Coning. The report was funded by Norway, Sweden and Switzerland.
