The Hague Roundtable on Climate & Security is an independent forum to promote international cooperation in adapting to climate risks to human well-being, sustainable development, peace and political stability. Created in 2015, participants from representatives of governments and organizations meet for informal conversations to share information and strategies in adaptation regarding water resources, natural disasters, floods, droughts, sea level rise, migration, potential conflict and stability of fragile states.
“We can’t do it (adaptation) alone” was a theme of the 8th meeting of the Hague Roundtable that was held on 4 December at the Embassy of Vietnam. The presentations and active discussions explored water cooperation, innovation in agricultural adaptation, natural disaster resilience, refugee finance and much more. An article has been published on the meeting, and outcomes from the discussions and presentations will be published in the Roundtable report.
