Planetary Security Initiative (2015; The Hague; ~4 staff; planetarysecurityinitiative.org)
Run by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, this initiative “aims to catalyze action in affected contexts” and reduce “climate-related risks to conflict and stability, thus promoting sustainable peace in a changing climate.” It was “operated by a consortium of leading think tanks until May, 2019. With the conclusion of four major planetary security conferences, the initiative now redirected its focus from awareness creation to applicable action after successfully supporting the efforts to place climate-related security risk at the center of the global foreign policy and defense stage.”
