In case you missed it, Dr. Chad Briggs recently gave a keynote address, “Making Your Own Fate: Climate Risks and Planning for Security,” at the 11th Annual Trudeau Foundation Conference, Weathering Change Pathways to Sustainability In Canada. The conference asked “executives from the insurance and financial sectors, social entrepreneurs, an advisor to the US military, energy experts, and some of Canada’s top economists to take a hard look at such topics as food security, the future of international governance arrangements, and Canada’s energy landscape.” All presentations from the conference can be found here

We direct your attention to Dr. Brigg’s keynote address which draws from decades worth of experience as a scholar and Strategy Director at GlobalInt, advising the US Military on climate and environmental security. Of particular interest in this presentation is Dr. Brigg’s account of how climate change has been approached by the security community in the past, as well as what is needed going forward.
