Event description

Event date: 17 March 2022, 14:00–15:15 CET

The event, organised by the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP) and the UN Development Programme’s (UNDP) Geneva office, will serve as Geneva’s official  presentation of the UNDP’s special report titled New Threats to Human Security in the Anthropocene: Demanding Greater Solidarity.

According to this report, despite people on average living longer, healthier, and wealthier lives, these advances have not succeeded in increasing people’s sense of security. The report examines a cluster of threats that have become more prominent in recent years, including digital technologies, inequalities, conflicts, and the ability of healthcare systems to tackle new challenges like the COVID-19 pandemic.

How to improve human security in light of emerging threats in the 21st century?

In this context, the event aims to bring in a diverse set of voices and perspectives from security, health, climate, digital, and diplomatic communities, with the aim of starting a global conversation on human security.

Diplo’s Executive Director Prof. Jovan Kurbalija will be one of the experts at this event.
