Taking Action on Climate and Fragility Risks
This independent report, commissioned by the G7 members, identifies seven compound climate-fragility risks that pose serious threats to the stability of states and societies in the decades ahead. Based on a thorough assessment of existing policies on climate change adaptation, development cooperation and humanitarian aid, and peacebuilding, the report recommends that the G7 take concrete action, both as individual members and jointly, to tackle climate-fragility risks and increase resilience to them.
When climate change exacerbates conflicts and crises, resilience must be the compass for foreign policy. The Resilience Compass features news, reflections and opinions on climate change and fragility, with contributions from the Wilson Center’s New Security Beat, International Alert and guest authors.
This collection of resources complements and extends the analysis of the report. It contains an interactive factbook allowing users to explore case studies from around the world and provides background readings and contextualized report and event summaries.

The first German-UK-French Climate Diplomacy Day was held on 9 September 2014. Events held that day in German, British and French missions in over 30 countries highlighted the importance of our climate diplomacy partnership, showcased successful climate projects, and emphasised the need for ongoing climate action. The Climate Diplomacy Day has been continued since then. Examples from activities organized in 2016 are the exchange organized by the German Federal Foreign Office, the activities of the German embassy in Seoul and the EU delegation in Moscow.
