The Climate Security Expert Network
The Climate Security Expert Network (CSEN), which comprises some 30 international experts, supports the Group of Friends on Climate and Security and the Climate Security Mechanism of the UN system by synthesising scientific knowledge and expertise, advising on entry points for building resilience to climate-security risks, and helping to strengthen a shared understanding of the challenges and opportunities of addressing climate-related security risks.
CSEN's members are based around the globe and provide profound regional and thematic expertise to feed into the knowledge products and consultation processes of the CSEN.
The network is supported by a grant from the German Federal Foreign Office. The Secretariat of the CSEN is run by the Berlin-based think tank adelphi.
