Spotlight: The G7 Summit and the Road to COP26 with Nick Mabey and Tom Burke (E3G)
The G7 was one of the most significant events to use diplomatic efforts to align national efforts around a massive scaling up of climate action this year - and the first big test of the UK’s post-Brexit diplomatic clout. While several nations are making statements of intent with their climate action commitments - including the UK's enshrinement of a new target in law to reduce emissions by 78% by 2035 - what is actually agreed will be key in influencing the COP26 agenda. Solutions to vaccine roll-out, economic recovery and climate change must all be brought together if there is to be a successful COP26 in November - but was there enough progress made? To assess the G7 Summit's effectiveness, H+K London's MD of Better Impact, Chris Pratt, is joined by two COP veterans from the global climate change thinktank E3G: Tom Burke (Chairman & Co-Founder) and Nick Mabey (Chief Executive & Founder Director).

Paris Was a Success, But Response to Climate-Security Threats is Lagging, Says Nick Mabey
New Security Broadcast
In the months leading up to the United Nations conference on climate change in Paris last fall, expectations were high. And the result actually exceeded those expectations, in many respects, says Nick Mabey, director and chief executive at E3G, in this week’s podcast. “We have stronger goals,” Mabey explains, and the agreement “puts adaptation and resilience on an equal footing to mitigation, so we like to say we now have a climate-risk management regime.”After more than a decade monitoring the geopolitics and security implications of climate change and resource scarcity, Mabey and his colleagues at E3G believe this new regime to be more robust due to the “strong legal force and political backing of the agreement.”However, the implications of climate-security issues remain under-examined in the foreign policy community. “Paris made us safer, but not safe,” Mabey says. “We've got a whole set of mixed drivers for complexity driving instability and social unrest.”“There's not sustainable security without addressing climate and resource issues in forward planning,” he explains. “But I can tell you from talking to people in governments, none of that is in the current plans.”One opportunity for improving the way climate-related security issues are accounted for may be the election of a new UN Secretary General. A successor to Ban Ki-moon will be chosen at the General Assembly later this year. Asking the candidates to address climate-security threats would continue the conversation and momentum.The momentum created by Paris is fragile. Mabey says the core challenge is identifying and maintaining a coalition of countries who will continue to work toward a strengthened climate-security framework. “Unless we can point to a coalition of countries who want to see this happen, we will always be on the margins.”Nick Mabey spoke at the Wilson Center on May 6, 2016.
