The PSI aims to catalyze action when climate change is affecting human security and increases conflict risks. It sets out best practice, strategic entry points and new approaches to reducing climate-related risks to conflict and stability, thus promoting sustainable peace in a changing climate. The organization acts as a global knowledge hub bringing together leading think tanks.
The organisation's objectives are to enhance political involvement in climate-security, strengthen the knowledge-policy interface by consolidating a global, cross-sectoral and interdisciplinary community of practices. Further, it wishes to develop and promote policies and good practice to support governments, the private sector, and implementing agencies better securing peace in regions affected by climate change. The PSI operates as a permanent platform for international cooperation on planetary security.
