Climate Change and the United Nations Security Council

Back to search results

This research will assess the institutional innovations necessary for the United Nations Security Council to play a constructive role in responding to climate change. Attention is shifting from the question as to whether the Council could legitimately participate in climate governance to that of how. The research will impact the work of NGOs and may shape the policy of Council members, particularly non-permanent members. It will build on path-breaking work already being done at UNSW and internationally on the specific policy tools that the Council could bring to bear on this global challenge.
