3 Regional Conference The Impact and Implications of Climate Change: Strategies and Security for ASEAN Member States Organized by Cambodian Institute for Cooperation and Peace (CICP) in Collaboration with Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) Sokha Phnom Penh Hotel 2-3 July 2015 BACKGROUND The 2014 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) states without reservation that the Earth is locked on an irreversible course of climatic disruption from the buildup of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. While immediate and drastic decreases in global emissions can mitigate the intensity of the coming impacts, they are now and will continue to be devastating. Climate change is a major concern to ASEAN and constitutes the most unpredictable threat to national economies, security, and the health and well-being of citizens. Mitigation strategies are currently underway that include carbon capture schemes, renewable energy projects, and emissions reduction protocols. The challenges of climate change reach into every aspect of human society and impact governance and security protocols across the region and the globe. Climate change will impact different global regions in different ways. For this region discussions should be broad in scale and attend to trans-boundary phenomena in the search for effective mitigations and solutions. RATIONALE OF THE CONFERENCE The focus of this conference is to examine current strategies and security implications in the ASEAN region as they relate to and are affected by the coming insecurities of climate change. With this, we hope to create wider debate on climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies and their implications for regional security. This conference takes a both a traditional and nontraditional approach to security and will address the roles and responses of conventional military security as well as the more pervasive threats that effect human security at the societal level. This conference will bring together leading researchers, environmental experts, civil society and policy makers from ASEAN Member States and other international organizations to discuss proposed and implemented climate-change strategies at country and regional levels in ways that bring thoughtful and critical assessments of their security implications
