Climate-related Peace and Security Risks (CPSR)

2020 - 2023 (Ongoing)

The Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI) and the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) are collaborating on a climate, peace and security project that is aimed at backstopping the work of Norway during their period as an elected member of the Security Council.

The primary objective of the project is to generate reliable, relevant, timely and actionable information on climate, peace and security risks for specific countries and regions on the UN Security Council agenda. Its main product is a series of fact sheets on countries on the agenda of the Security Council.

The project will stimulate global networking among researchers and policymakers through a series of dialogues, and through the newly established Nordic-Baltic Climate, Peace and Security Network.

The project is co-led by Dr. Cedric de Coning at NUPI ( and Dr. Florian Krampe at SIPRI (
