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.
Planning for the First Hundred Days and Beyond
Date: Dec 15, 2-4pm (Eastern Time)

In this virtual event hosted by the Center for Climate and Security (CCS), an institute of the Council on Strategic Risks, we will explore how the incoming U.S. Administration of Joe Biden should position itself to meet the threat of climate change from the outset. We’ll discuss the commitments he’s already made; we will discuss recommendations from 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; and we will highlight steps that President-Elect Biden and his team should take in the first hundred days to establish a firm foundation to address climate security threats.
We’ll hear from a distinguished panel of CCS experts to discuss these matters, each of whom has invaluable experience driving progress on climate and security within the Federal Government: the Honorable Sherri Goodman, the Honorable Alice Hill, the Honorable Dennis McGinn and the Honorable Miranda Ballentine. The panel will be moderated by John Conger, Director of the Center for Climate and Security.
To RSVP, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will provide the Zoom link to attendees.

By the end of the century, the Persian Gulf could be too hot for human habitation. Water sources like the Golan Heights and the Nile are sources of tensions. With the effects of climate change only set to grow in the coming of years, what are the consequences for the region? With implications on security, migration, and local economies, a change is necessary but remains unclear. While countries like Morocco are embracing solar energy, Saudi Arabia continues to rely on oil. To find out and discuss what this all means, join us on Tuesday 8 September at 4 pm (UK time) to hear our panel of experts discuss the ramifications and possible solutions to this multi-decade challenge.(more…)
