In support of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2250, SDSN Youth is has produced a thematic paper to investigate the impact of climate change and ecological crises on the peace and security of young people. This thematic paper is an official supporting document of the Progress Study mandated by SCR 2250, which the United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres will submit to the Security Council and General Assembly in December 2017.

The thematic report aims to determine how youth can be empowered to address the impacts of climate change and alleviate security challenges as a means of preventing rather than responding to conflict. The paper also outlines a series of policy and program recommendations for the UN Security Council in its mandate to address the impacts of climate change on youth populations.
