Description
The security dimension of climate change is increasingly recognized by the Defence sector. Whereas climate change initially was considered just as a new risk factor, attention has shifted to how the increase of extreme weather events impacts todays’ military capabilities, how defence organisations and institutions can adapt and mitigate, and to how the military can contribute to environmental peacebuilding efforts. Another area of attention is how military research and innovation could better align with energy transition objectives, and become a test-bed and accelerator of new technologies and how new tech can be harnessed to reduce the climate impact of defence organisations. Join the webinar to discover how the military can contribute more to reducing security risks related to climate change.
