A new SIPRI Searchlight film takes an in depth look at what key stakeholders think about the idea of an institutional home for climate change at the United Nations.

Overall – the film finds – stakeholders do not want to create parallel institutions at the UN, but they are supportive of a coordinating mechanism which will: facilitate speedy analysis of climate related security risks; support better coordination of different actors within and connected to the UN system. And, ultimately, a UN security council which is fit to deal with the complex, overlapping security risks of our time.
