European Parliament's Subcommittee on Security and Defence (SEDE) discussed the correlation between economic and military activities and, among other things, soil degradation, desertification, lack of water resources and food shortages at its meeting on 22 November and sought to find a solution to mitigate the impacts of security incidents on climate change

The climate change debate has shifted in conjunction with the end of the UN Climate Change Conference (COP23), which took place from 6 to 17 November in Bonn, Germany. The main issues discussed were the deeper implementation of the Paris Agreement, possible US withdrawal from the Paris agreement in 2020 or Brexit's impacts on climate policy in general. The willingness of rich states to annually invest $100 million to support third countries most affected by climate change is also essential. This year's COP23 fully confirmed the pressures by the general public on top policy leaders to better combat climate change. The EU is one of the main supporters of the fight against climate change, the SEDE talks further show that the EU intends to meet its commitments.
