Victoria, BC, Canada.
Pacific Climate Security Conference and Career Development Workshop
Understanding the multifaceted links between climate change and security across the global, national, and human levels of analysis is an urgent priority for policymakers, scholars, civil society, and security and defence practitioners. Complex relationships exist between the unfolding crisis of human-caused environmental change and phenomena such as armed conflict, violent extremism, migration, poverty, resource scarcity, political instability, economic prosperity, energy security, and community resilience, requiring interdisciplinary and multi-method analysis and policy development. Climate-related security challenges encompass changes in the international and domestic threat environments, the need to decarbonize defence and national security activities, and tensions among competing security priorities, electoral politics, and a range of social movements. Climate-related hazards will increase in coming years, making it vital to identify and support emerging leaders in the field of climate change and security, and to foster connections between scholars, analysts, and practitioners committed to addressing these inter-related social, political, economic, and ecological challenges.
