Exchange of Ideas

On behalf of the Permanent Missions of the Pacific Small Island Developing States (PSIDS), Islands First cordially invites NGO representatives with UN credentials to participate in an exchange of ideas with several Pacific Island Ambassadors concerning their draft resolution on the threat of climate change to international peace and security.

The threat of climate change to international peace and security is urgent. The co-sponsoring nations believe that the UN Charter charges the Security Council to assess and mitigate security threats. In their view, small island developing states are particularly vulnerable to security challenges, and have begun to experience sea-level rise that, if left unchecked, will destroy them.

Please contact Islands First for more information.
