The Peace Operations Training Centre (POTC) successfully rolled out the second edition of this climate security training programme aimed to equip personnel involved in peace missions and operations with a deeper understanding of the complex challenges that climate change poses to global peace and security.

The Slovenian centre welcomed participants from 13 countries from all corners of the globe, each differently experiencing the effects of climate change. The participants enhanced their knowledge and gained a comprehensive insight into climate security-related topics such as the 9 planetary boundaries, water security, climate risks and vulnerabilities, the international legal framework on climate change, the UN and EU approach to climate security in peace operations, human migration linked to climate change and the gender perspective of climate security, among others.

At the conclusion of the training, Slovenian Foreign Minister Tanja Fajon personally awarded certificates to the participants at Jable Castle on May 22nd.

POTC would like to express gratitude to Minister Fajon, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Slovenia, the driven participants, and the expert trainers who made the training an overall success. We look forward to the further development of the training content with the feedback gained and lessons learned.
