The Climate-Security Nexus: Implications for Military Personnel

Responding to the impact of a changing climate on international, regional, national, environmental and human security requires an all-of-society / all-of-government response. The conference will use a multi-stakeholder, multi-level approach to help further raise awareness of the climate-security nexus and highlight the role of the defence community in assessing the risks to stability and peace, the role of civil-military cooperation in climate change mitigation and adaptation, and the role of state and non-state actors in addressing the impact of climate change on military personnel.
