The Center for Climate and Security (CCS) is pleased to announce the 2023-2024 class of the Climate and Security Fellowship.
Extreme weather, food and energy crises, and global competition over clean energy are increasingly underscoring the security implications of climate change, prompting a recognition among U.S. policymakers that climate change must be at the center of U.S. national security and foreign policy. To meet this goal, there is a need for increased integration and capacity in the U.S. security and climate workforces. The Climate Security Fellowship creates a space for mid-career professionals to explore the impact of climate on security and security on climate while building a network of professionals working at this nexus.
The 2023-2024 class of 12 fellows comes from a diverse set of backgrounds and expertise critical to advancing a whole of society response to climate security risks. During their term, they will have opportunities to engage with expert speakers, discuss a syllabus of key climate security topics, and build relationships with the CCS network and one another. The CCS team looks forward to collaborating with them over the next nine months.(more…)
The Center for Climate and Security (CCS), an institute of the Council on Strategic Risks, is pleased to announce a call for applications for the 2023-2024 Climate Security Fellowship.
In the last few years, extreme weather, food and energy crises, and global competition over clean energy have underscored the security implications of climate change, prompting the Biden Administration to order climate change be placed at the center of U.S. national security and foreign policy. To meet this goal, there is a need for increased capacity on the part of the U.S. security and climate workforces to think and act more broadly and deeply on climate security. The Climate Security Fellowship creates a space for mid-career professionals to explore the impact of climate on security and security on climate while building a network of professionals working at this nexus.
The Climate Security Fellowship will run for nine months (September 2023–May 2024) with one two-hour meeting each month, held virtually. Meetings will involve outside speakers, reading, and group discussion exploring different aspects of climate security such as climate finance, food and water security, military and intelligence services, and strategic competition.(more…)
These are unprecedented times. The world continues to battle the COVID-19 pandemic, while democracies and economies around the globe are tested. Through it all, climate change is destabilizing natural and social systems, and driving new security risks. It has never been more important to engage the next generation of leaders on addressing these systemic risks.
The Climate and Security Advisory Group (CSAG), a project of the Center for Climate and Security, founded the Climate and Security Fellowship to do just that. The 2019-2020 Climate and Security Fellows are a distinguished group of professionals, all with one thing in common: a desire to address the security threats of climate change. They are emerging leaders in their respective fields of study and bring the necessary diversity of perspectives and backgrounds to address such wicked problems.
A self-selected group of Fellows wrote briefers on emerging climate security vulnerabilities. Each chose a topic that they felt was underrepresented in the current literature and deserved further examination. Our hope is that these briefers will spark a broader conversation on these vital security concerns.
I want to thank the Climate and Security Advisory Group for their support and thank all of the climate and security experts who briefed this cadre of fellows including: Hon. Sharon Burke, Hon. John Conger, Col. Mike Gremillion, USAF, Hon. Sherri Goodman, Dr. Rod Schoonover, and Joan VanDervort. Congratulations to the 2019-2020 class of Fellows. We look forward to watching their careers progress, and to their guidance of the next generation of leaders!

The Climate and Security Advisory Group (CSAG) is pleased to announce a call for applications for its Climate Security Fellowship Program, a collaborative program of the Center for Climate and Security, the American Security Project, and the Wilson Center’s Environmental Change and Security Program.
In response to the need for increased capacity on the part of the U.S. government to tackle climate insecurity, and a need for strong mentorship for aspiring climate and security practitioners, the Climate and Security Advisory Group developed a Climate Security Fellows Program which launched in 2018 (see information on previous classes here). It is the first professional fellowship program for emerging leaders seeking meaningful careers at the intersection of climate change and security.
The program for 2021-2022 will have three components:
