CNAS – Study Session: National Security in the Era of Climate Change
The session will feature Caitlin Welsh, Director of the Global Food Security Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies; Dr. Paul Angelo, Director of the William J. Perry Center for Hemispheric Defense Studies at the National Defense University; and Dr. Marcus King, Professor of the Practice in Environment and International Affairs. Jocelyn Trainer, Research Assistant for the Energy, Economics and Security program at CNAS, will moderate the panel. The conversation will focus on the national security implications that arise from climate change trends in three different regions, Sub-Saharan Africa, Southeast Asia and Latin America. Our panel will share their views on the impacts of climate change on regional security in these areas, and how it will shape U.S. national security policy in the near future.
