The world is warming and, as it warms, every region of the world will face risks to national security in the coming decades. Nations already vulnerable may encounter the most severe impacts, further destabilizing fragile regions. On the current warming trajectory, temperatures will be warmer by the end of the 21st century than ever experienced by human civilization.
Impacts from this warming include–but are not limited to–drought, increasing severity of storms, salt water intrusion to coastal regions, declining agriculture and increasing health risks. As a result, entire societies may be displaced, contributing to unprecedented waves of migration and potentially stoking conflict and violence.
Join an expert panel of defense researchers and military professionals as they address the security impacts of climate change, in particular the most concerning. They will share insight into what regions will be most affected, how climate change will impact the operational environment, what is meant by security infrastructure and how does climate change threaten it, and how do we proactively build capacity to address climate change.
