Draft General Assembly Resolution on Threats to Climate Change to International Peace and Security to be Discussed

12 August 2008: The Permanent Missions of Pacific Small Island Developing States (PSIDS) and co-sponsoring States are convening a discussion on a draft UN General Assembly resolution on the threat of climate change to international peace and security resolution on 15 August 2008, at UN Headquarters in New York, US. Noting that if unaddressed, climate change will lead to security challenges and destroy small islands because of sea-level rise, PSIDS states that the UN Charter charges the Security Council to assess and mitigate this security threat.
