This virtual event hosted by the Center for Climate and Security (CCS), an institute of the Council on Strategic Risks, is the third in our series looking at actions the Biden Administration can take on climate security in its first 100 days and beyond. The panel will explore climate security risks in critical locales such as South Asia, the Middle East, and Sub-Saharan Africa, and why they matter to the United States. Panelists will discuss how the United States can build climate adaptation and resilience in the face of these risks, including how to implement recommendations in the Climate Security Plan for America – published by CCS and endorsed by dozens of military, foreign policy and intelligence experts, including eight retired four-star generals and admirals. 

Panelists include former US national security, defense and intelligence officials and CCS experts with significant experience assessing climate security-related risks:

  • Dr. Tegan Blaine, Senior Advisor, Environment and Conflict, US Institute of Peace
  • The Honorable Sherri Goodman, Senior Strategist, The Center for Climate and Security, Former Deputy Undersecretary of Defense (Environmental Security)
  • Dr. Marcus King, Senior Fellow, The Center for Climate and Security, Director of the Master of Arts in International Affairs Program (MAIA) at George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Affairs
  • Sarang Shidore, Senior Fellow, The Council on Strategic Risks, Senior Research Analyst, Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin

The panel will be moderated by Erin Sikorsky, Deputy Director of the Center for Climate and Security, Director of the International Military Council on Climate and Security, and former Deputy Director of the Strategic Futures Group at the National Intelligence Council.
