Climate and Security Futures
How will climate change impact international security? What are the possible future scenarios? What are the key security issues that need to be watched? How do we prepare?
Join us for this critical issues course of two half days to explore these questions.
Environmental issues, including in particular climate change, are becoming a dominant concern impacting all corners of the globe and all sectors to varying degrees. Participants will be able to enhance their understanding of the security implications of climate change and how strategic foresight can be used to help them identify weak signals & prepare for possible scenarios. This will be achieved through sessions on:
- the main concepts related to climate and security;
- case studies to explore the issues and the responses; and,
- exploring possible climate and security futures using foresight methods.
The participants will be able to:
- enhance understanding on the implications of climate change for security,
- discover strategic foresight and examine possible climate & security futures,
- develop perspectives for action that can inform decision making.
