Consequences of the global warming, in fact, as the rising sea level, disturbances in precipitation patterns, increase of extreme weather events have shown an impact on regional tensions and global stability. And this impact requires a responsible, sensitive, and adequate response.

The Italian Navy, on the forefront in dealing with environmental challenges, is deeply focused on the analysis of the possible consequences that climate changes can have on the environment, and on the maritime ecosystem in particular.

The objective of the workshop is to raise awareness about the potential security issues that are linked, directly or indirectly, to the climate change, and the capabilities required to properly tackle this threat.
