What futures are we preparing for?
How will climate change impact international security? What are the possible future scenarios? What are the key security issues that need to be watched? Where may the opportunities be found? Join us for this one and half day course 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. This course offers a unique opportunity to apply a futures’ lens to one important aspect of this topic, climate change and international security. Participants will be able to enhance their ability to respond to future challenges and capture more effectively opportunities that may arise on the specific security implications of climate change. 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
- the application of foresight methods to explore possible climate and security futures.
The participants will be able to:
- enhance understanding on the implications of climate change for security,
- examine possible climate and security futures,
- explore strategic foresight and apply related methods.
