Programme of the Swedish OSCE Chairpersonship 2021

The Programme includes a focus on Building resilient and more robust societies to counter threats to human security where the report states that "Climate change and natural degradation affect millions of women, men, girls and boys around the world and in the OSCE region. More attention needs to be paid to the link between climate change and

positive outcomes beyond improvement in the local environment. As Chair, we [Sweden] will continue the OSCE's active role in preventing and countering environmental and climate change-related security
