In Case You Missed It: January Virtual Events from the Naval War College

Feb 1, 2021

These January 2021 virtual events hosted by the U.S. Naval War College are now available for replay:

U.S. Naval War college hosted a virtual National Security Significance of a Changing Climate (NSSCC) seminar titled, “Risk and Resilience in the 21st Century.” This conference explores the national security and economic implications of climate change on the current and future security landscape. Strategically and operationally, this affects both our allies and adversary’s behavior leading to the open-ended question—what does it mean if the Department of Defense (DoD) adopts a posture that focuses on the strategic implications of climate change?
