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. Building Climate Resilience at Home focuses on the fourth and final pillar of 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), which urges investments in resilient infrastructure, resilient forces, and prevention initiatives. The panel will react to the new Biden Administration budget request and the specific programs they should embrace to prepare for, and to prevent, climate impacts.

Panelists will include:

  • John Conger, Director, Center for Climate and Security and former Principal Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Comptroller)
  • Alice Hill, Senior Fellow for Climate Change Policy at the Council on Foreign Relations; Governing Board, Council on Strategic Risks
  • RADM (USN, Ret) Ann Phillips, Special Assistant to the Governor of Virginia for Coastal Adaptation and Protection; Advisory Board, The Center for Climate and Security
  • Joan Vandervort, former DoD Deputy Director for Ranges, Sea and Airspace; Advisory Board, The Center for Climate and Security
