KPMG RAAD: Climate change, risk management, and the role of leadership

Theme and topics

On February 17, the book Klimaatgeneraal by former Commander of the Armed Forces Tom Middendorp will be published. In this book, Middendorp shows in an appealing way that climate change has many consequences, which increase tensions and fuel conflicts and wars. Using concrete examples, he clearly explains what is needed and what solutions are available to secure our future.

Conflicts, or even wars, often arise from scarcity. This scarcity can also lead to migration flows and be a breeding ground for extremism. In particular, the growing shortage of water is a major driver of tensions. Fortunately, there are also solutions: from transforming institutions such as NATO and armed forces worldwide to capturing water from desert air.
