Ambassador Cohen Delivers Remarks at a UN Security Council Open Debate on the Impacts of Climate Related Disasters on International Peace and Security


“Mr. President, we’ve seen how natural disasters can exacerbate existing vulnerabilities, threatening critical infrastructure that citizens rely on to reliably deliver food, water, and shelter in the wake of such events. This makes things harder for everyone – from relief workers to police forces to national militaries – as they try to access remote areas, supply their teams, and deliver needed services.”
