Preparing for the Coming Storm: The Security Sector and the Environment

Climate change and environmental degradation are impacting human security – whether through natural disasters of increasing frequency and severity, the potential of resource scarcity to exacerbate existing tensions and create new conflict dynamics, or long-term effects such as forced migration. A key question for governments and communities alike is: what might actually make us more secure in an era shaped by climate change? And what role can the security and justice sectors play, not only in responding to climate-induced crises but also in tackling the factors driving climate change to begin with? These are the questions which guided DCAF’s conversation with a panel of environmental and security experts on September 22, 2021.

What works in Career Path Development for Freelancers in Civilian CSDP missions - A review of EU MS good practices

Ireland took an active role in leading a cluster discussion on career path development, with a focus on freelancers in civilian CSDP missions. With the support of DCAF – Geneva Centre for Security Sector Governance and, more specifically, its International Security Sector Advisory Team (ISSAT), representatives from 17 EUMS and several EU services, as well as the European Centre of Excellence for Civilian Crisis Management joined the discussion to unpack the key challenges and opportunities of seconding and build career path of freelancers. In parallel, DCAF-ISSAT carried out individual interviews with seconding states and active/-former freelancers in CSDP missions.

The analysis of the information collected is summarized in this report. Its aim is to highlight what works among the EUMS and show some of the good practices that may inspire others to improve the number and quality of freelancers deployed to civilian CSDP missions.
