Date: March 29, 2021 1 PM -2:30 PM EST
Update (3/29/2021): See a recording of the virtual event below.
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.(more…)

Climate change is rapidly changing the Arctic at the same time that security tensions are heightened across the region. How will future climate impacts affect the security environment, operations, and infrastructure of the region? How do Arctic nations understand the changing risk landscape? How can Arctic nations move forward on a “low tension, high effort” agenda in the climate era?
This panel will feature a high-level discussion on the intersection of climate change and security in the Arctic, followed by a dialogue on opportunities to manage future security risks in the region. Panelists will build on the findings and recommendations of two new reports from CCS and its partners: Climate Change and Security in the Arctic and A Climate Security Plan for Canada.

The second panel in our series, Planning for the First 100 Days and Beyond
Date: January 28, 2020 2-3:30 pm EST
Update (1/28/2021): See a recording of the virtual event below.
This virtual event hosted by the Center for Climate and Security (CCS), an institute of the Council on Strategic Risks, is the second in our series looking at actions the Biden Administration can take on climate security in its first 100 days and beyond. This panel will explore opportunities to leverage unprecedented foresight capabilities to assess climate security risks. Panelists will discuss how the U.S. government can better integrate climate models and projections and strengthen the collection and dissemination of relevant data in order to conduct increasingly robust and actionable assessments of climate risks, including 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.(more…)
On January 8, the US Naval War College will host a public conference, The National Security Significance of a Changing Climate: Risk and Resilience in the 21st Century. Center for Climate and Security (CCS)CCS Advisory Board member, the Hon. Alice Hill, will serve as the keynote speaker, and panels feature many members of the CCS staff and community, including CCS Advisory Board Members the Hon. Sherri Goodman, Dr. Marcus King, and Rear Adm. Ann Phillips (Ret). Also on tap to speak are CCS Director John Conger and CCS Senior Research Fellow Josh Busby.
We’re delighted to see such an event on the War College’s agenda–In our Climate Security Plan for America, we recommend expanded training programs across the US government to ensure federal employees understand how to characterize and respond to climate security risks. This type of conference is an excellent step toward fulfilling that recommendation.
