About the BDCD


The Brussels Dialogue on Climate Diplomacy (BDCD) is an informal network  for the exchange of information and the promotion of cooperation among European institutions, international organisations, NGOs and think-tanks active in the nexus between climate change and international, national, human and environmental security.  

The BDCD project is coordinated by the Environment & Development Resource Centre.

The first meetings of the BDCD were held in 2016 and 2017 followed by regular meetings and other BDCD conferences since.
