NATO to tackle climate change for first time, summit communique to say

·1 min read

BRUSSELS, June 14 (Reuters) - NATO has agreed on a climate action plan to help mitigate climate change, seen as a threat multiplier that impacts the alliance's security, NATO leaders will say in their communique to be published after their summit on Monday.

The alliance is aiming to increase its awareness, adaptation, mitigation, and outreach efforts regarding climate change, NATO will say according to a copy of its final summit statement seen by Reuters.

To adapt to climate change, NATO will also incorporate climate change considerations into its full spectrum of work, ranging from defence planning and capability development to civil preparedness and exercises, according to the communique. (Reporting by Steve Holland, editing by Robin Emmott)
