Online Series: Intelligence Seminar Series

Climate Change, Intelligence, and Global Security is a half-day conference co-sponsored by the Intelligence Project and the Environment and Natural Resources Program at Harvard Kennedy School’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs along with the Center for Climate and Security. 

The conference will directly follow the April 22/23 Earth Day Leaders Climate Summit, and will emphasize the critical need for international cooperation and global leadership to collectively address the security threats posed by the climate crisis. We will convene senior climate experts, current and former intelligence officers, and leaders in the private sector and academia to facilitate productive dialogue and innovative solutions for combating the climate crisis. The four panels will examine climate change from a security perspective, discuss the role of the intelligence community in monitoring and mitigating the threats posed by climate change, explore new ways of thinking about international intelligence cooperation, and examine the role and contributions of the private sector.

This conference is virtual, open to the public, and free to attend.  Advanced registration is required. Please register individually for each session.

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.
