The Indo-Pacific is a region with high vulnerability to climate-related hazards such as coastal, riverine flooding, heatwaves, and tropical storms. At the same time, the Indo-Pacific is a region that is experiencing rapid economic growth while coming to terms with the long-term costs of air and water pollution.
European states such as the Netherlands, France, and Germany, as well as the EU itself, have asserted in their respective Indo-Pacific strategies their willingness to cooperate with Indo-Pacific states to address the effects of climate change and of pollution in the region.
But what can Europeans do to promote climate security in the Indo-Pacific without alienating regional states? What opportunities for real collaboration are there?
The Hague Centre for Strategic Studies is pleased to invite you to our latest in-person Europe in the Indo-Pacific Hub event: Climate security in the Indo-Pacific: How can Europe contribute? Dutch-French Dialogues on the Indo-Pacific.
Dutch and French experts will come together for this event organized by HCSS in cooperation with the Embassy of France in the Netherlands and the Institut Français des Pays Bas to discuss climate security in the Indo-Pacific, as well as the role that European states could play in mitigating climate-related hazards in the region.
- Laura Birkman, Senior Strategic Analyst at HCSS and is Head of the Climate and Security Programme
- Joseph Dellatte, Research Fellow for Climate, Energy, and Environment at the institut Montaigne’s Asia Program
